GAY FOR PAY WITH BLAKE & CLAY
Every actor knows there is nothing more prestigious than playing gay. But is your pesky heterosexuality getting in the way of a one-way ticket to award season? Join Blake and Clay as we teach you to play gay and make LGBTQ about Y-O-U. Go from straight to straight up booked! Let our lived experience get your acting career off life support! Representation matters… and our representation hasn’t called in ages.
Toronto Star raved “I could go on quoting every line in this hour-long play, because so many of them are perfectly calibrated mic drops,” while NOW Magazine hailed it as “Straight Up Brilliant”.
GAY FOR PAY is “razor sharp satire” (Glenn Sumi) that delivers “a punchy gag-a-second whirlwind” (Istvan Dugalin).
