Our Season

We welcomed you back – outside! – with our Oktoberfest celebration and performance, and we’re delighted to see you in person again soon!

We’ve also been so inspired by audience feedback on our experiences in the mail that we are planning more for this season. We’re excited to share more with you about some of our offerings this year, both at the theater and at home – and keep an eye out for more exciting announcements to come!

In an effort to be responsive to changing conditions, we’ll keep you up to date about any changes to our offerings or COVID practices.

2021/22 Season

Join us for experiences in person and at home, and stay tuned for more exciting announcements to come!

Our annual celebration of modern love

Valentine’s Day 2022 with Tiny Dynamite

February 12-14, 2022

Conceived by Kathryn MacMillan and Meghan Winch
​Honorary Producer Carol Beam

Looking for an extra cheesy night out to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Join A Play, A Pie, and A Pint outdoors for our annual “brilliantly casual”™ event – this time cozied up with warm drinks in a heated tent in the beautiful Powel House garden! Join us for good times and big laughs with our new collection of stories, poetry, and tweets about modern love — the good, the bad, and the hilarious. Watch out for details on submitting material for a chance to have it read in the show by some of Philadelphia’s favorite performers.

To protect our audiences and artists, there is limited availability for this event, and proof of vaccination will be required at time of entry.

An encore of this world premiere, commissioned by Tiny Dynamite

Georgiana Darcy was refined and polite – or tried to be, anyway. A thwarted elopement threatened to tame her wild heart, but all the good breeding in the world can only go so far. Join us for a handcrafted story of love, distance, and what it means to bridge the two – all set in the world of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice. Over the course of 10 mailings, you’ll be immersed in two love stories, get a peek into what comes after the novel for your favorite characters, and receive handcrafted treasures – including some for you to make yourself!

It’s the promised return of our hit comedy, now at a new venue with an all-new production! Come along for a fun, funny, and fast-paced romp through the masterpieces of Jane Austen. Three nimble actors take on all of Austen’s beloved heroines, friends, and love interests—and her incisive social satire—in just 80 minutes.

Outdoors in the Powel House garden; rain dates planned

It’s the in-person return of A Play, a Pie, and a Pint! We’ve scoured the internet, this time for the most amusingly autumnal content, including Bavarian lore, pumpkin-spice controversies, and some Halloween themes, too: spooky short stories, spectral encounters, and the funniest Halloween tweets we could find. Pre-performance, there will be crafts, games, and beer selections from local favorite Triple Bottom Brewing!

To protect our audiences and artists, there is limited availability for this event, and proof of vaccination will be required at time of entry.

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.
