There’s a land that I heard of

Produced for Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Steven Beckly is magic. To be precise, he is magician when it comes to capturing light, rendering light as subject. In There’s a land that I heard of, Beckly explores light in the manner in which he so beautifully does throughout his practice. The wood paneling, a teenage memory of a suburban basement caught in the warm glow of early fall afterschool light. There are no ruby slippers to be found over this rainbow, but rather a dusting of glitter: a pot of gold that for many of us in the LGBT community, over the past forty years, is Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
