March COVID-19 Update: the safety of our patrons and teams is paramount and with infection cases expected to rise, we have taken the very difficult decision with a heavy heart to cancel our upcoming season of Hir. This decision has not been made lightly, with many factors leading to it, including difficulties around travel. All ticketholders are being contacted with information around how they can exchange their tickets or receive a credit. You can read more about this decision and our other COVID-19 changes here.
Paige has a new philosophy: destruction.
Returning home from an overseas tour of duty, Paige’s son Isaac soon finds himself in a different kind of warzone.
It’s not the home he left: his sister is transitioning into his brother and his formerly abusive father has become a docile doll; force-fed oestrogen smoothies.
His mother is liberating the family from patriarchal concepts such as ‘cooking’ and ‘cleaning’. This isn’t a breath of fresh air; this is a hurricane.
Challenging, hilarious and gutting all at once, Hir is a breathless piece of theatre taking a blow torch to the status quo.
Why YOU WILL love this play
“Taylor Mac’s Hir is a timebomb of a play – and its time has come. It will explode onto our stage. Driven by incendiary characters this play is about the state of our brave new world.”
Artistic Adviser/Lead Director, Ross Gumbley
