Review: PTERODACTYLS Ponders the Extinction of a Traditional American Family Due to Self-Indulgence

BWW Review: HIR at The Liminal PLayhouse
by Keith Waits - Sep 5, 2017

The dysfunctional family drama has long been a staple in American theatre, only the particulars of the dysfunction change to reflect the times. In Taylor Mac's Hir, Isaac Connor (Neil Brewer) is a Marine discharged from active duty collecting dead bodies from a war zone, returns to his California home to find his mother, Paige (Teresa Willis). has abandoned all sense of order and has clothes, food, and other life detritus strewn around the house. His stroke victim father, Arnold (Michael Drury) sits in a house dress and rainbow clown wig behaving like a toddler, and his sister, MAx (Megan Adair) is trans gender, preferring to be addressed as 'hir' (rhymes with here) or 'Zee.' For a soldier used to the severe discipline of the military, the chaos is nearly intolerable. (more...)
