Promo Video: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS, Austin Playhouse, January 10 - February 2, 2020
Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed (Wild) and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Tiny Beautiful Things is a luminous play that personifies the unfathomable questions that are at the heart of being human.
When a struggling writer is asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, she receives thousands of letters asking for advice. “Sugar” uses empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small. 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.
Tiny Beautiful Things contains adult language and themes. Recommended for ages 18+.
