Hir is a tenderly heartfelt and highly intelligent new work by one of the ground breaking artists of our time.

"Perhaps no play this year inspired a greater sense of awe" - New York Times (Top 10 Best Theatre 2015)
"Without question, a major dramatic work of 21st century theatre" - Chicago Tribune

Taylor Mac's subversive comedy, Hir, is both hilarious and terrifying in its unflinching portrayal of a dysfunctional family for the modern age.

Max is a transgender teenager living with mother Paige and father Arnold, once the bread-winner and abusive patriarch. When brother Isaac returns home from serving in the marines, he finds war has broken out at home. Paige is on a crusade, finally liberated from an oppressive marriage she is set to dismantle the patriarchy and follow Max into a brave new post-gender world. But in this savagely funny, thought-provoking work, annihilating the past doesn't always free you from it.
