THE BEST ADVICE CAN COME FROM AN UNLIKELY SOURCE.
Cheryl Strayed is many things; a wife, a mother, a daughter, a writer, an ex-heroin user and now, an unpaid, online anonymous advice columnist called Sugar.
Amidst the clutter of family life, she receives emails from strangers urgently needing help navigating the contradictions and complexities of life. Sugar replies with candour, offering her own tough, sweet brand of unadulterated advice designed to offer a path of healing and catharsis. What would you tell someone who is unsure about role-playing as a sexy Santa or the father who feels as dead as his lost son?
Academy Award nominee (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Nia Vardalos adapts this New York Times bestselling book into a stage work that is as authentic and human as the real stories it contains. Dare to reach out and embrace this exquisitely vulnerable play and the questions it poses. The advice you receive may surprise you.
