      From Miller's hilarious grade school playground battles over wanting to marry another boy to the harrowing travails of being in a bi-national relationship with his Australian lover, Glory Box leads the audience on an intense and humorous journey into the complexity of the human heart that knows no boundary. Glory Box (the term that Australians use for "hope chest") conjures an alternative site for the placing of memories, hopes and dreams of gay people's extraordinary potential for love.

      Miller has received numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1990, he was awarded a NEA Solo Performer Fellowship, which was overturned under political pressure from the Bush White House because of the gay themes of Miller's work. Miller and three other artists, the so-called "NEA 4," successfully sued the federal government with the help of the ACLU for violation of their First Amendment rights.

      Tim is doing a week-long storytelling workshop with Coe College students beginning on Dec. 3 and culminating Dec. 7 with a 7:30 pm performance of their collective performance work Body Maps. His CSPS performance is co-sponsored by Coe College Department of Theatre Arts, with additional funding assistance from the Coe GLBT Alliance and the Committee on Diversity.
