Based on the book Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by CHERYL STRAYED
Adapted for the stage by NIA VARDALOS || Co-Conceived by MARSHALL HEYMANTHOMAS KAIL, and NIA VARDALOS

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 that have no answers.  Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, Tiny Beautiful Things gives the audience permission to be “happy and sad and angry and grateful and accepting and appalled and every other possible emotion, all smashed together and amplified”…while offering  a big dose of catharsis.

PLEASE NOTE: Tiny Beautiful Things contains discussions about sexual assault, child abuse, drug abuse, and suicide.
Run time:  75 minutes, with no intermission.
Tiny Beautiful Things is presented in arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.  www.concordtheatricals.com

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.
