About Tilda Swinton... on Craigslist

After a devastating break-up, gay wallflower Walt innocently places an ad on Craigslist for a new roommate. An isolated and aimless gay man, he finds his life, family, and relationship flipped upside down when the ad is answered by effusive and other-worldly actress Tilda Swinton (Tom Lenk) who demands she be allowed to study and dissect his sad life for her next big movie role. The two very different personalities clash immediately as things get hysterically chaotic and surprisingly cathartic. "Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist" is an absurd must-see comedy about life with one of the galaxy’s greatest living actors.

After scoring with critics and audiences in LA, Edinburgh, London and NYC, Byron Lane’s absurd comedy "Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist" returns to The Laurie Beechman Theatre for a limited run. Directed by Tom Detrinis ("Bright Colors and Bold Patterns") and starring Tom Lenk ("Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Rock of Ages" on Broadway) as Tilda Swinton.
