Sammie is the Apprentice Stage Manager for Hir. Here's what she had to say about the piece:
For me personally, Taylor Mac’s Hir is an incredible ride that I am so proud to be working on. It’s always refreshing and exciting to see Trans and Queer representation in work that’s happening around Vancouver - it certainly gives me hope that future LGBTQ work can receive a similar platform!
Stay tuned for upcoming blogs about the rest of the Hir company!
