Join us in the beautiful Physick House garden for amusingly autumnal content and some Halloween themes, too: spooky short stories, spectral encounters, and the funniest Halloween tweets we could find.

Home for the Holidays with Tiny Dynamite

Dec. 9-11, 2022
At the Powel House

We’ll travel in time as we travel through the beautiful, historic Powel House! Together we’ll explore the rooms of one of America’s finest examples of Georgian architecture and rediscover old holiday traditions, songs, and stories. This event uses the historic house’s stairs; there will also be a wheelchair accessible performance available each night.

To protect our audiences and artists, proof of vaccination will be required at time of entry.

Meet Murasaki Shikibu Followed by Book Signing, and Other Things

By Julia Izumi
June 7 – 18, 2023

At the Louis Bluver Theatre at the Drake

Tonight we welcome author Murasaki Shikibu to kick off the book launch of her novel The Tale of Genji. Granted, our event is over 1,000 years late, but Lady Murasaki is ready to make up for lost time. If you’re lucky, she might even talk about the book.

To protect our audiences and artists, masks will be required when not eating or drinking.

All venues will offer wheelchair accessibility to the performance space. While Home for the Holidays will use the Powel House’s stairs, we will offer a wheelchair accessible version of the performance each night. Please let us know at check-out if you’ll be attending the accessible version so we can be sure to accommodate you.

Plus, a special garden party fundraiser!

Cocktails at the Kelly House — A Fundraising Gala

Sunday, Oct. 16, 2:00 – 5:00pm

Join us for an exclusive garden party held at the Grace Kelly House in historic East Falls, featuring signature drinks, hor d’oeuvres, and small-group tours through the Kelly House led by members of the Kelly family! Grace Kelly’s childhood home is not open to the public, so this is an amazing opportunity to get a glimpse into the history of an iconic Philadelphia family while raising a glass to celebrate 10 years of Tiny Dynamite’s signature series, a Play, a Pie, and a Pint!

The Word on the Street:

The plays remain brilliantly quirky gems…A Play, A Pie, and A Pint® proves that theater needn’t be a full-evening formal occasion. Drop in for a quick one, you won’t be sorry.
