The Liminal Playhouse Opens 2017 — 2018 Season with the Louisville Premiere of HIR

Artistic Director Tony Prince and Producing Director Richard McGrew are excited to open The Liminal Playhouse's third season with Taylor Mac's "Hir." Tony Prince is directing the company's first production since joining Bunbury Theatre and Pandora Productions as the third resident theatre company at The Henry Clay Theatre.

In this thoroughly modern dark comedy about the strains and confusion of living in the midst of changing paradigms, Isaac (Neil Brewer) comes home from serving in a war zone to find that his mother Paige (Teresa Willis) has given up on all social conventions after his father Arnold (Michael J. Drury) has had a stroke, and his sibling Max (Megan Adair) has started transitioning from female to male. The playwright describes the play as Absurd Realism.

The original technical team from Liminal's first season is reunited for this production. It consists of Scenic Designer Eric Allgeier, Lighting Designer Keith Kimmel, Costume Designer Shane Estes and Sound Designer Richard McGrew.
Showtimes are August 31 and September 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and September 3 and 10 at 2:00 p.m.

All performances will be at The Henry Clay Theatre, 604 South Third Street, Louisville, KY.
