this Saturday at 11am & 1:30pm
at the Main Stage during Marfa Lights Festival.

Criminal by Caitlynn Almance during the Marfa Lights Festival this weekend. Local actors

In homage to the first Marfa Lights Festival and the melodrama play that was presented there,

especially for Marfa Lights Festival 2022, Juice Joint Criminal is a murder mystery melodrama
set in Far West Texas in the 1920’s, imagine Sherlock Holmes meets Vampire Diaries and the
When asked the reason of adding a theatrical piece to the line-up of Marfa Lights this year,
Marfa Chamber of Commerce President Abby Boyd replied, “Doing research in the Archives of
the Big Bend at Sul Ross for our 35th anniversary, we discovered that a play was performed at
the first Marfa Lights Festival in 1987. Marfa Lights Festival came to be because of a need to
entertain locals, and in those first years, everyone in town got involved. Obviously, music is a
big attraction and an important part of Marfa Lights, but we thought having different types of
entertainment, and ways for locals to get involved would be a good way to celebrate both the
history of the festival and those in our community today.” Boyd continued, “Marfa Live Arts
was a natural partner because community theatre is what they do. We are so excited to showcase
the work of a local playwright, with a play set in West Texas, and see locals perform the roles.”
Juice Joint Criminal will debut on the Main Stage during the 35th annual Marfa Lights Festival at
both 11:00am and 1:30pm on Saturday, September 3, 2022.
