Tiny Beautiful Things
Connected to Strangers...
By Nia Vardalos
Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed
Directed by Christopher Alleman+
Venue: Flex Theater
November 22 - December 8
When a struggling writer was asked to take over an unpaid anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed uses empathy and personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles large and small. Adapted for the stage by Oscar-nominated writer/actor Nia Vardalos, Tiny Beautiful Things is about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.
“It’s provocative, poignant and rich." - New York Daily News
“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
*Advisory: Tiny Beautiful Things contains adult language and explicit conversations on adult themes…you know, what an online advice columnist might say. It is recommended mature teens (16-19) and adults.
*All decisions on student attendance are left to the discretion of the parent(s).
