From November 23rd - December 8th, 2018, Pi Theatre produced the Canadian premiere of Taylor Mac's Hir at The Annex in downtown Vancouver.
Audiences around the world are celebrating Taylor Mac’s timely and darkly comedic interpretation of the classic dysfunctional family—one that’s both conventional in its domestic setting and incendiary in its vibrant theatricality. Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac, the eldest son of Paige and Arnold, has returned from the wars only to discover a household in revolt. Arnold, the patriarch, has become disabled, leaving Paige liberated from an oppressive and abusive marriage. Isaac’s younger sibling Max, is a newly out transgender teen with a thing or two to teach the world. And Isaac? He has to come to terms with where his loyalties really live.
Named “one of the most exciting theatre artists of our time,” by Time Out NY, Mac is the author of 17 full-length plays and performance pieces including Hir, which placed on the top 10 theatre of 2015 lists of The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Time Out NY.
"Sensational—in all senses of the word…audacious and uproarious black comedy.”
– The New York Times
