Marissa Rex stars as Sugar in in touching and heartwarming play about the power of connection and importance of being seen. Featuring Ryan Albrecht, Leah Creek, and Gloria Wang. Directed by Toledo theatre veteran, Nancy Wright.

Based on the bestselling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, 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 that have no answers.
