Based on the acclaimed book by Cheryl Strayed (author of the best-selling Wild), brilliantly adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), and directed by veteran OSF actor Michael J. Hume, Tiny Beautiful Things follows columnist “Sugar”, played by Renée Hewitt, as she weaves together her personal experiences while offering insights full of light, laughter, and humanity to advice seekers played by Geoffrey Riley, Mia Gaskin, and Carlos-Zenen Trujillo. This funny and deeply touching exploration of resilience is a great reminder that we’re not so alone after all.
At its center, Tiny Beautiful Things is about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions that have no answers.
This production has adult themes and language, and runs 90 minutes without intermission.
