Isaac returns home from a three-year stint in Afghanistan to discover his suburban family engaged in a war of their own. His mother has liberated herself from patriarchal ideas like ‘cleaning’ and ‘cooking’, his sibling is transitioning and impatient to leave the world around hir, and in a neglected heap in the corner, their once dominating father is being force-fed oestrogen-laden smoothies.

Deliciously sly and exquisitely intelligent, Taylor Mac’s subversive comedy is an examination of private power and the messy implications of change.

A dysfunctional family drama for the 21st century.

Theatrescenes

"Hir is a powerful and provoking piece of theatre, a working-class manifesto of liberation and matriarchy that creates new theories as it dissimulates old ones."
