Tiny Beautiful Things

Studio Series

November 8, 2019 - December 1, 2019

Based on the book the book by Cheryl Strayed
Adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos

Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things personifies her time working as the online advice columnist “Sugar.” When asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position, Strayed used empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small. The stage adaptation by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) places Strayed in her home, where the letter writers appear and share their deepest hurts and struggles. The letters are full of heartbreak and humor, and Strayed counsels each writer deep into the night, sharing words of compassion and hope. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.

Critic’s Pick! “Tiny Beautiful Things is about the endangered art of listening to – and really hearing and responding to – other people…it works beautifully as a sustained theatrical exercise in empathy.” –The New York Times

Recommended for ages 18+. This play contains strong language and adult content.*

*While full of beauty and hope, the play contains mature content on the potentially challenging themes of sexual abuse, chemical addiction, death, miscarriage, child abuse and suicidal thoughts.
