To help raise funds for the tour, the company will present just three performances at the end of July, right here in Pittsburgh, immediately before the show heads to North Carolina. Seating is limited, so buy your tickets now!

Monteze Freeland returns to direct the original cast:

These will be full productions, including set and costumes, presented in Bricolage's theatre space (entrance right next to ours). We've very proud of this show, and can't wait to show it off in these national and international venues. So we'd appreciate any donation you can make toward our tour of this show.

More about our original 2016 production:

"A tremendously theatrical event — a celebration of the enormous and unique power of drama and how a brilliant playwright writing at the top of his game can levitate an audience." - Ted Hoover, City Paper

"A riveting reinvention ... an inspired transfer." - Sharon Eberson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A Note From Tami Dixon ("Miss Julie")

Dear friend,
Last year I had the privilege of performing in Mark Clayton Southers' new play Miss Julie, Clarissa and John, inspired by Strindberg's classic text Miss Julie. This year we have been given two amazing opportunities to tour this piece to audiences all over the world. First we land at The National Black Theatre Festival in North Carolina and then we head to Scotland for The Edinburgh Festival!! I am so excited and honored to be able to tell this incredible story again for new audiences.

Before we head out we are doing three special Pittsburgh performances to get us ready for the road and to raise the last bit of funds we need to make our tour a success. I'm hoping you might consider buying tickets to one of the shows on July 27, 28 or 29, or making a donation (of any size) to our GoFundMe campaign. Your support is important to our success and will be greatly appreciated.

Below are all the details. Thank you for your consideration and I hope to see you at the theatre. It's really a special piece written by a wonderful writer (a native son of the burgh) and I have the honor of playing Miss Julie alongside actors whom I love and respect. The subject matter will get you talking, the performances will get you feeling and the idea that we will represent Pittsburgh to the world will get you fired up!!
Much love and gratitude,
Tami
