BCT: Theater In the Garden – Tiny Beautiful Things

Monday, August 03rd 2020 • 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Tiny Beautiful Things, based on the book by Cheryl Strayed and Adapted for the Stage by Nia Vardalos. 

Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed (author of “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail”) 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 which have no answers. 

 
Critic’s Pick! “Tiny Beautiful Things is about the endangered art of listening to – and really hearing and responding to – other people…it works beautifully as a sustained theatrical exercise in empathy.” – The New York Times


The series will take place in our Meditation Garden and the shady, expansive green area that surrounds it. Bring your own low-back chairs or blanket. 

Bring your own low-back chairs or blanket. At this time, we will not have vendors at this event. Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and beverages.

Please help us keep the garden clean by packing in and packing out your picnic!

Attendance is limited to these events, which will very easily allow attendees 6′ – 10′ between themselves and others. Please be mindful of other guests and practice social-distancing at all times. Face masks are required while entering and walking around the event for your safety and the safety of others.
