Directed by Trinity Rep’s Artistic Director Curt Columbus, the show features resident company member Angela Brazil as Sugar, an anonymous advice columnist who draws from her own past to help those writing to her build a better future. Tiny Beautiful Things runs January 13 – February 13 with press opening night Wednesday, January 19 at 7:30 pm. Tickets start at $27. More information is available at

A celebration of the simple beauty of being human, this funny, deeply touching, and uplifting play is an exploration of resilience, based on Cheryl Strayed’s journey as the beloved anonymous advice columnist for “Dear Sugar.” Over the years, thousands of people turned to Sugar for words of wisdom, compassion, and hope. Reluctant to claim that she has all the answers, Sugar looks to her own past and draws on her life experiences to bring light, laughter, and humanity to others.

“We chose this show a couple of years ago after reading the amazing book that it’s based upon, and then this wonderful adaptation,” director Curt Columbus said. “It is such a powerful collection of wisdom, heartache, and joy, that we knew our audiences would love it. I feel that now, more than ever, Cheryl Strayed’s words will resonate and illuminate like nothing else we could program at this time.”
