A new musical!

Honest Pint Theatre Company is excited to present the first “workshop offering” of a new work-in-progress. Playwright and North Carolina Piedmont Laureate Tamara Kissane and composer/lyricist Matthew Hager have written this new offering of musical theatre based on the legend of Franz Kafka and the doll story. Get a glimpse of a diverse cast of talented actors and musicians developing a new musical work, directed by UT’s Mia Self, and be among the first to preview snippets of the show, all leading up to a full-scale production in 2023.
