HIR


  • Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company 641 D ST. NW WASHINGTON DC 2000

saac, a veteran, returns to his childhood home and discovers that his family’s been transformed. His timid mother, freed from the constraints of her marriage, has begun a crusade to subvert the patriarchy, and his sister is now a genderqueer anarchist who uses the pronouns ze and hir. Meanwhile, his abusive father now wears clown makeup and downs estrogen pills…against his will.

Obie Award-winner Taylor Mac’s “audacious, uproarious black comedy” (New York Times) flips the script on gender power dynamics and asks a key question: how do we heal when our politics divide us? It’s a sly kitchen-sink drama covered in glitter, and you’ll laugh your way through to an answer.

Featuring company members Emily Townley and Mitchell Hébert
