Sarah Pidgeon and Tanzyn Crawford has added to the Hulu series adaptation of ‘Tiny Beautiful Things.’ Pidgeon and Crawford will join alongside Kathryn Hahn and Quentin Plair. The series is based on Strayed’s bestselling book, from ABC Signature and Hello Sunshine.
The first two episodes will be directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg. The show was created by Liz Tigelaar and is based on Strayed’s book. The series follows, Claire (Hahn), who reluctantly becomes Dear Sugar — an anonymous, revered advice columnist — when her own life is falling apart. Told in multiple timelines with astonishing intimacy, nerve, and candor, she excavates the beauty, struggle, and humor in her own life to show us that we are not beyond rescue, that it’s our stories that will ultimately save us.
Sarah Pidgeon’s role in Tiny Beautiful Things
In the series, Pidgeon will play the role of Young Clare, the younger version of the lead character, played by Hahn. Rebellious and sharp-tongued, she acts out irresponsibly after her mother’s death and endures a contentious but maternal relationship with her younger brother, Lucas.
Tanzyn Crawford’s Role in Tiny Beautiful Things
Crawford plays the role of Rae Kincade, the queer teenage daughter of a white mother, Clare (Hahn), and a black father, Danny (Plair), in mid marital crisis. Uncomfortable in her own skin and often emotionally torn between her parents, Rae shows artistic leanings, though she’s an introvert of few words, just starting to develop her own opinions and making sense of who she is in the world.
The show was executive produced by Liz Tigelaar, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Lauren Neustadter, Stacey Silverman, Jayme Lemons, Strayed, and Hahn.
