The title of the theatrical experience known as A Play, a Pie and a Pint, says it all.
The month-long program, which opens its third season, at Society Hill Playhouse on March 6, serves up a play, a slice of pizza pie, plus a pint of beer or other beverage of your choice, for just $15.
Presented by Tiny Dynamite Productions, the show goes on at 6:30 p.m. It’s a perfect time to unwind after work, and differs from more formal theater presentations, which usually begin later in the evening. That and the fact that each play takes up just one tidy hour is all part of Tiny Dynamite’s grand plan to encourage people who might not normally go to the theatre to stop by and enjoy a small part of Philadelphia’s amazing theatre experience.
The concept has proven hugely popular with sellout audiences being par for the course. Tickets are available now, click here to purchase.
Each week brings a new play and this season’s roster features several of the city’s most adventurous theater companies. Check out the season full schedule below.
