After two long years of absence, the American Theatre Company is excited to return to the stage with Tiny Beautiful Things, a modern play about the profound experience of reaching out for help.
Based on real emails that real people sent to the online advice column "Dear Sugar" (penned by author Cheryl Strayed), Tiny Beautiful Things is not a narrative in the traditional sense but an emotional journey about drawing hope and healing out of loss, pain, and sorrow -- and about creating real human connections in a virtual space.
In the words of Director Carrie Ellwanger: "I first read this script in 2019 and was immediately seduced by its deceptively simple, cathartic poetry. Two years into the pandemic, the script resonates even more. During those long months of isolation, virtual connections were all we had. Now, as we take our first tentative steps back into the wider world, this is the play we need: an opportunity to come together again, stare our collective pain in the face, and once more find the joy in tiny, beautiful things."
Tickets can be purchased here in a few simple steps.
