The revolution starts at home.

Isaac returns home from a stint in the armed forces to discover his suburban family engaged in a war of their own.

His mother, liberated from an abusive marriage, is intent on upending the patriarchy.

His younger sibling is transitioning and on a crusade to dismantle the binary.

Their dominating father, left speechless and passive after a stroke, is floundering in this new reality.

But in this sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.

Hir is pronounced ‘Here’

Starring: Felix Crossley-Pritchard, Dryw McArthur, Perry Piercy and K.C. Kelly

Taylor Mac has been named “one of the most exciting theatre artists of our time” (Time Out NY).

‘Taylor Mac’s Hir is more than a comedy about gender. It proves the potential of theatre.’ — The Guardian

‘A powerful and provoking piece of theatre, a working-class manifesto of liberation and matriarchy that creates new theories as it dissimulates old ones’ — NZ Herald
