HIR By Taylor Mac Comes to Chelsea Theatre Works Photo HIR By Taylor Mac Comes to Chelsea Theatre Works
by Stephi Wild - Jan 24, 2020

Taylor Mac's sly, subversive comedy begins with prodigal son Isaac returning from the war, only to find a house in revolt. Liberated from an abusive marriage, his mom Paige is on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. His sister Maxine is no longer his sister but his transgender/genderqueer sibling Max who uses the pronouns ze and hir. His once violent father is being fed estrogen and dressed as a clown. But in this anarchic reimagining of the classic American kitchen sink drama, annihilating the past doesn't always free you from it.
