The Bush Theatre proudly presents Taylor Mac’s Hir -  a sly and subversive comedy that shows that simply annihilating the past doesn’t necessarily free you from it.

“Stop behaving like a man!”

“We are men!”

Isaac comes home from his service in the marines to find that a new war has broken out at home. In a usually sleepy nondescript town somewhere in Central Valley – USA, Isaac’s mom Paige is  fed up with domestic patriarchy and has begun blowing up entrenched routines.  She has stopped washing, cleaning and caring for their ailing father, who is recovering from a recent stroke. Paige reigns supreme.

Ally to Paige's new regime is Isaac’s sibling Max. However before Isaac went away Max was actually Maxine!  Isaac’s father, once the breadwinner of the family has through ill health toppled from the head of the household to the bottom of the pile exposing the fact that their 'home' is in fact nothing more than a cheap house made of plywood and glue, and all notions of both masculinity and femininity have become nothing more than weapons with which to defeat the old order.
