HIR By Taylor Mac
 

HIR
by Taylor Mac
10 MAY to 27 MAY
STUDIO UNDERGROUND

Hir (a gender-neutral pronoun of “his” and “her,” pronounced “here”) is an audacious dive into the dysfunctional-family playpen of American theatre. A highly intelligent, heartfelt and humorous portrayal of a family in crisis.

Isaac returns home after serving a three-year stint in Afghanistan, only to discover his family household in revolt. His father, Arnold, has suffered a stroke rendering him nearly speechless. His mother, Paige, has become a gender studies aficionado. And his younger sister, Max, is now his younger brother. Isaac suddenly finds himself at the centre of a very different kind of war zone.

Taylor Mac’s subversive comedy about a middle-class family in transition is fresh, feisty and emotionally gripping – it’s like ‘The American Dream’ is stuck in the American reality. Darkly comic - like “Roseanne on acid”!
“The jaw-dropping brilliance of Taylor Mac’s script, an exercise in take-no-prisoners imagination and hilarious writing.” Huffington Post
