Performance Photos: HIR by Taylor Mac, Capital T Theatre at the Off Center, January 5 - 21, 2017
Isaac, a veteran, returns to his childhood home and discovers that his family’s been transformed. His timid mother, freed from the constraints of her marriage, has begun a crusade to subvert the patriarchy, and his sister has become a trans male anarchist who uses the pronouns ze and hir. Meanwhile, his abusive father now wears clown makeup and downs estrogen pills…against his will.
Obie Award-winner Taylor Mac’s “audacious, uproarious black comedy” (New York Times) flips the script on gender power dynamics and asks a key question:Ddoes destroying the past really free you from it? It’s a sly kitchen-sink drama covered in glitter, and you’ll laugh your way through to an answer.
Capital T is proud to present the regional premiere of this dysfunctional dark comedy starring Nate Jackson, Jay Byrd, Dilon Yrugas and Roxy Becker under the direction of Delanté Keys.
Running Time: 2 hours including one fifteen-minute intermission.
