Pure Theater
134 Cannon Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS

In 2012, a writer named Cheryl Strayed published a book called Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar. The book was a compilation of letters and responses from Strayed's time as an anonymous advice columnist, "Dear Sugar," for the online literary magazine The Rumpus from 2010-12.

In the play, Cheryl moves around her home, reading and reacting to the letters Sugar receives, as a small group of actors follows her from kitchen to living room, essentially all around her home embodying the letter-writers and awaiting her responses, which often involve stories from her own life.

& THE 2018–2019 SUSAN SMITH BLACKBURN PRIZE

At the Frasier household, preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are underway. Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to make sure this party is perfect, but her sister can’t be bothered to help, her husband doesn’t seem to listen, her brother is MIA, her daughter is a teenager, and maybe nothing is what it seems in the first place...! Fairview is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of white supremacy.
