Happy Holidays

December will be magic again.

Light the candle-lights

To conjure Mr. Wilde

Into the Silent Night.

Oh, it's quiet inside,

Here in Oscar's mind.

December will be magic again.

Don't miss the brightest star.

Kiss under mistletoe.

I want to hear you laugh.

Don't let the mystery go now.

Kate Bush

Happy Holidays, thank you and the future!

As we approach the holidays, we take time to reflect on the year we are leaving behind. It has been a year full of joy and gratitude. A year full of highs (and some lows). It was also a time of rebirth! 2022 saw us return to the stage for the first time since the Pandemic. Our April production of SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS was a critical and artistic success. It was the perfect show to for our post pandemic world. Many audience members connected to the piece in ways that surprised us! We also began the first steps towards a new musical. The June workshop of AWAY HOME allowed us to share with you, our patrons, the beginning of this moving show about love, loss, and hope. We are excited to bring the next iteration of the show to life in June of 2023! Both of these post pandemic productions (nice alliteration, huh?) allowed us to showcase the talent of local artists, onstage and off. That is something we are so proud of. Something that we are committed to. Your generosity makes that happen! Your monthly pledges via Patreon and your one time donations throughout the year make is possible for us to produce the shows and hire and pay each artist involved. 2023 is going to be an exciting year! We will kick off with a remount of the first show we ever did, A STEADY RAIN. We will follow that with a co-production with The Justice Theatre Project of TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS. This production has been on our bucket list for years. You don't want to miss either of these shows! They each will have an impact on you and we can't wait to share them. The summer will bring another workshop of AWAY HOME thanks to a grant from The Manbites Dog Theatre Fund. As you can see we have a busy schedule! Your support the last ten years has been tremendous and we will need it even more as we head into our next decade of creating theatre for thirsty minds!

Last minute gifts?

As you wind down your holiday shopping, we would be remiss to mention that you can always make a tax deductible donation to Honest Pint! We set an ambitious goal of $5,000 (or more) by year’s end in order to to produce our January 2023 show, A STEADY RAIN and prepare for our April show, TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS. Thanks to our friends and patrons, we had a successful Giving Tuesday and between the Facebook fundraiser and donations on PayPal, we made it halfway to our goal!

We are so excited about our future and with your help we can make that a reality! No donation is too small (or too large).

You can make a donation via PayPal here.

Rain in the forecast!

We are so excited to remount Keith Huff's A STEADY RAIN in January! Susannah Hough will direct Ryan Brock and David Henderson as they revisit the roles of Joey and Denny, two Chicago policemen that have been best friends since kindergarten. The play is inspired by a real-life event involving Jeffrey Dahmer, and that event threatens Joey and Denny's lifelong friendship when it becomes clear someone must bear responsibility for their egregious failure to assess the situation accurately.

Here is what critics said about our production ten years ago!

The show will be produced at Theatre Raleigh's Studio theatre and will run:

  • Sat. Jan 21st 2023, 7:30 pm

Drink Deep!

What is an Honest Pint?

Laughter, anger, joy, happiness, sadness, frustration — you’ll find all of these and more in the works we choose. But the common element should always be a seed of truth. We strive to plant that seed in a field of high-quality entertainment and nurture it. Like that wonderful late-night conversation with a friend over a pint of beer, an Honest Pint show should resurface in your thoughts, dreams, and subtle ways you interact with the world for months or maybe years to come. We hope to change your perceptions, challenge your beliefs, and give you a hell of a great night in the process.

Honest Pint Theatre Co. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Federal Tax ID - 82-2082759
