Recurring Event Event Series: Tiny Beautiful Things – Outdoor Screening

Tiny Beautiful Things – Outdoor Screening

November 4, 2021, 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Gwynethe Glickman stars as Sugar in NECC’s production of Tiny Beautiful Things outside on the Haverhill campusThe Northern Essex Community College Theater Department will bring “Tiny Beautiful Things”, a play based on a book by best-selling author Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by actor, director, producer and screenwriter Nia Vardalos, to the Merrimack Valley, with outside socially-distanced performances on its Haverhill Campus, November 4, 6, and 7.

For two years, before she became a best-selling author in 2012, Cheryl Strayed was an advice columnist, responding anonymously to troubled readers as “Dear Sugar”, published on the Rumpus website.

Soon after the popularity of her book “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” (2012), she published a second book “Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar” (2012), a collection of her advice columns.

Topics explored include jealousy, work relationships, incest, infidelity, miscarriage, and physical abuse.

NOTE: Because of the adult content, this show is recommended for ages 18-plus.

The show will be held in a grassy knoll in front of the library on the college’s Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St, Haverhill, MA. Hot chocolate, hot cider, and cider donuts will be available and there will be a limited number of heaters. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under a nearby tent.

Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door (cash only). $15; $10 for students and seniors
