The Blue Slipper Theater presents the one-act play Tiny Beautiful Things

March 1-3, and 8-10.

Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by the

Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos, Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions

and answers that the pseudonymous “Sugar” published online from 2010-2012. When

Strayed – a struggling writer – was asked to take over the unpaid position of advice

columnist, she used empathy and her personal experience to help those seeking guidance for obstacles large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching out when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answers.

“What’s incredible about this play is that the material is based on the stories and

struggles of real people,” director Katie Mangett shared. “These stories help us to find

hope and look for all the tiny, beautiful moments in life. I gravitated towards this play

because it fits the intimacy of the Blue Slipper space beautifully.”

Tiny Beautiful Things runs March 1-3 and 8-10. Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays

at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Due to sensitive content, this play is recommended for

ages 17+. Interested parties may learn more about the content and reserve tickets at

Tiny Beautiful Things is generously sponsored by an anonymous donor. This production

is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel

French, Inc.
