Tim Miller, FF Alumn, Performs "Glory Box In Washington D.C. thru July14th, 2002.

Hi All,

AT LAST I will be performing GLORY BOX in Washington D.C. with Woolly Mammoth Theater presenting me at the Source Theater near Dupont Circle thru July 14th. Doing the show in D.C. -- the city where that naughty Congress is that could change the unjust American laws that deny lesbian and gay couples equal rights in our country-- carries special resonance for me. If you know folks in DC, send'em along to the shows.

best, Tim Miller

Dynamic & Political Solo Performer Tim Miller Returns for One Week Only at Source Theatre

GLORY BOX Focuses on Gay Immigration Rights

Washington, DC - Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company is pleased to present gay solo performer Tim Miller in GLORY BOX, his newest work focusing on immigration rights for same-sex partners. GLORY BOX runs through July 14th, 2002, at Source Theatre (1835 14th Street, NW).

Tim Miller's GLORY BOX is a funny, sexy and charged autobiographical tale of threatened deportation and international love-in-exile. In this new work, Tim recounts his struggles to keep his Australian partner in the United States in the face of immigration laws that do not recognize same-sex partnerships. Brimming with biting humor, sweetness, and of course, a Miller-size dose of political lobbying, GLORY BOX explores the challenges of love, marriage and rights for gay people and their partners from a truly unique perspective.

Tim Miller is an internationally acclaimed performance artist. His creative work as a writer and performer strives to find an artistic, spiritual and political exploration of his identity as a gay man. He, along with three fellow performance artists - the "NEA 4" - made national headlines in 1990 after successfully suing the National Endowment for the Arts for withdrawing solo performer grants under political pressure. Though the Supreme Court decided in 1998 to overturn part of Tim's case and determined that "standards of decency" are constitutional criterion for federal funding of the arts, Tim vows "to continue fighting for freedom of expression for fierce diverse voices." GLORY BOX marks Tim 's fourth visit to Woolly Mammoth. He previously performed his works My Queer Body, Naked Breath and Shirts & Skin. His works have been performed across the U.S., Australia and Europe. Tim is the author of Shirts & Skin and Body Blows, which compiles six of his performance pieces in one volume.

GLORY BOX runs July 9 through 14 at Source Theatre, 1835 14th Street, NW
(corner of 14th & T). The performance schedule is Wednesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 8pm & 10pm, Sunday at 3pm. Tickets Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday are $20; Friday and Saturday are $25. Tickets may be purchased through Woolly Mammoth at 202-393-3939 or online at www.woollymammoth.net.
