Written by Taylor Mac

Directed by Rich Brown

 

Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mom. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally, she’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.

“Perhaps no play this year inspired a greater sense of awe than Taylor Mac’s audacious dive into the dysfunctional-family playpen of American theater.”
-The New York Times

“A brilliant narrative stroke on Mac’s part… The ideas and questions proliferate and spawn others as the curtain comes down...”-The New Yorker

“Hir, which chafes at American dramatic tradition in exciting ways, is precisely the kind of work that should be put before the audiences, artists, leaders, and philanthropists who will be reshaping that tradition.”- HowlRound
