Life is messy. You know it. I know it. So does Sugar.
A celebration of our imperfections, frailty, strength and absolute humanness - Tiny Beautiful Things follows the relationships between online advice columnist, Sugar, and the many real-life readers who share their most intimate secrets with her. With empathy, courage and compassion she weaves her own life story into the support she offers to her many readers. Based on the best selling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted by Nia Vardalos for the stage - this play is about recognizing the chaos, healing when you are broken and finding the spirit and determination to move on.
“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
