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
