Tiny Beautiful Things, a play based on the book by Portland author Cheryl Strayed, is set to open on June 16th and will have six performances, closing on June 24th.

Additionally, Ten Fifteen Productions proudly announces a Post-Show Community Discussion with Cheryl Strayed (aka Dear Sugar) following the performance on Saturday, June 17th.

Ms. Strayed’s wildly popular collection of columns, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar, celebrates its 10th anniversary reprint this year. Adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), the play Tiny Beautiful Things has enjoyed phenomenal success and captures all the depth, wit, and “radical empathy” of the original material. Additionally, Strayed has created two hit podcasts, Sugar Calling and Dear Sugars, the latter co-hosted with Steve Almond. The Hulu series Tiny Beautiful Things began streaming in April. You will not want to miss out on this live, in-person experience with the real Sugar, who also wrote Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, the #1 New York Times Bestseller. Advice on love, life, and maybe even hiking, what more could a North Coaster ask for?

About the show: Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar” was publishing online from 2010-2012. When the struggling writer was asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used 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.

Sugar – Danyelle Tinker
Letter Writer 1 – Marc Weaver
