The June Tolliver Playhouse is located in the Jerome Street Historic District of Big Stone Gap, Virginia. It seats approximately 335 people. The setting is lovely with woodland trees and new outdoor seating. It has a small waterfall and pond, and at times is filled with the sounds of melodious music and song.

The Trail of the Lonesome Pine Outdoor Drama, based on the novel by John Fox Jr., is the Official Outdoor Drama of the Commonwealth of Virginia and one of the longest running outdoor dramas in the country.

Set in Wise County, Virginia at the turn of the twentieth century, the love story between Jack and June is played out against a feud that has been boiling for over thirty years between two influential mountain families. The Tollivers and Falins wage their own war as the outside world and industrialization, are beginning to reshape the region.

The current stage adaptation explores complex themes related to the boom and bust cycle of the coal industry, the way people deal with change, the importance of family, how the prejudices we hold can shape our actions, and our connection to this land we call home.
