Trail of the Lonesome Pine State Outdoor Drama

The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, the Official Outdoor Drama of Virginia, will open
for its 55 th consecutive season on Thursday, June 22 nd , 2018.
The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is performed live every Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday night at the June Tolliver Playhouse in Big Stone Gap, VA and is the
third longest continually running drama in the United States. The show is an
intriguing, heart-warming, and emotionally driven adaptation of the novel by the
same name, written by John Fox, Jr who published the story in 1908. The story is
loosely based on “Devil John” Wesley Wright, a United States Marshal for the
region in and around Wise County, and his daughter. Though commonly labeled as
a romance, The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is a timeless story about family, faith,
and dreams. The show is family-friendly and it has become a tradition for families
across the nation to travel to the June Tolliver Playhouse in Big Stone Gap every
summer to enjoy the drama.
