HIR

“Sensational…audacious and uproarious black comedy” – NYTIMES

“Every decade is about a community that is being built as a result of being torn apart.“—Taylor Mac. In the dark comedy HIR, Taylor Mac explores this paradox with the story of a young man returning home from the military to find his family turned completely upside down. Social expectations are confronted head on in this wildly refreshing tale of progressive responsibility. When it comes to family sometimes you just have to figure it out.

“Without question, a major dramatic work of the 21st-century American theater.”
— Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
