Hir

$65-$80

Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mom. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, with Isaac's newly out transgender brother as her ally, she's on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac's sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.

The cast of HIR will feature Tony Award nominee and two-time Obie Award winner Kristine Nielsen, Daniel Oreskes, Tom Phelan and Cameron Scoggins.
