TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS

Thursday Jan 9, 2020
Category/Venue: Pure Theatre

Show runs Thu Jan 09 – Sat Feb 1

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.

This is A Who’s Who Murder Mystery

Recommended for: Sherlockians and those who like a good laugh

It was the Holmes family secret. A secret so dark, so disturbing that Sherlock and brother Mycroft vowed upon their father’s death it would forever be buried with the Holmes patriarch. It was the secret of ... the other Holmes brother! But when murder comes to Charleston with the annual convention of hero sidekicks, it will be up to you to determine what's what ... and who's who!

Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora

Finally, there is peace throughout the universe — no battles, no dark forces, no need for a military fleet. And so the Federation of Planets reassigned their fleet of starships. One ship — the Fed Ora — has been designated for just such an assignment ... cruise ship. A space cruise ship. Captain Quirk and his nine starship officers long for space adventures of old, but an anonymous gift brings more excitement than they may want.

An original sci-fi comic, audience-interactive mystery — Murder Aboard the Starship Fed Ora — now playing at the Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre..

The Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since long before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts replaced good Southern decency. But now the "ladies" (and audience recruits) must band together to overcome the greatest invaders to the Southern way of life since General Sherman and the palmetto bug. For today marks the first time the Club has ever opened up the floor to men ... and ... shudder ... Yankees!
