Ryan George Talks About "Tiny Beautiful Things"
The last thing Cheryl Strayed needed was an unpaid gig writing an online advice column—what with her penurious spouse, their bills, their kids, and the book she was trying to finish. So when a friend who had been writing the column asked her to take it on, naturally she agreed.
That’s the premise of Tiny Beautiful Things, the next play in the George Street Playhouse season; it will be available to stream from Tuesday, May 4 to Sunday, May 23.
The play is based on the real-life Cheryl Strayed’s 2012 best-selling book, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar. The book consisted of a collection of essays drawn from the “Dear Sugar” advice column that Strayed actually did take over from a friend and wrote anonymously for the online literary magazine The Rumpus.
