Lay of the Land


“Passionate, witty, endearing, furious, and fabulous!” – Critic’s Pick, Backstage

“A vivid, must-see achievement.” – David Nichols, The Los Angeles Times

Performance Space 122 co-founder Tim Miller’s sharp-knifed, saucy look at the State of the Queer Union during a time of trial! Careening from his sexy misadventures performing in 45 States, to Marriage Equality street protests, to the electoral assaults on gay folks all over the country, to his life as a grade-school flag monitor, to choking on cheap meat caught in his 10 year old gay boy’s throat, Lay of the Land friskily gets at that feeling of gay folks being perpetually on trial, on the ballot, and on the menu! Lay of the Land is a “lay” in all kinds of ways: a sex-assignation, a queer citizenship map, and of course a narrative ballad with a recurrent refrain! (Miller’s favorite way-down-the-list definition for “lay”!).
