Hir - Cancelled
By Taylor Mac
Directed by Michael Rebekah Fleishman
After a dishonorable discharge from the military, Isaac returns home from Afghanistan, expecting to confront his abusive father, protect his mother and sister, and relax into his old bedroom. His expectations are dashed, as he walks into a different kind of chaos. Father Arnold, having suffered a stroke, has turned into a helpless, childlike creature. Mother Paige, excited by this overthrow of the patriarchy, refuses to clean, and treats Arnold like a baby. And little sister Max, having come out as transgender, has begun to grow a beard. When waning male privilege and PTSD collide with clown makeup, acceptance of gender neutrality, and radical Faerie commune dreams, the result is explosive.
