Half of discovering who you are is finding where you belong. Packing,, a solo performance from writer/performer Scott Bradley (Alien Queen, Carpenters Halloween, We Three Lizas), is the tale of a genderqueer vagabond leaving small-town Iowa on a three-decade long odyssey, continually reinventing himself through new identities across multiple cities. His journey captures a snapshot of recent history through personal accounts of assaults, addictions, the plague years of the AIDS crisisand the fight for marriage equality. Combining personal memoir, historical record, popular music, and ancestral frontier stories, Bradley’s story illuminates the deeply personal LGBTQ struggles too-often erased from U.S. history.
