HIR

April 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

ON SALE SOON OKC Civic Center Music Hall CitySpace Theatre Presented by OKC Theatre Company April 27-May 6, 2017 Taylor Mac’s dark comedy is the story of a 21st century prodigal son. A veteran with PTSD responds to his father’s stroke by coming home to help care for him, but finds himself in the aftermath of another regime overthrow. His mother (formerly a battered wife) and his newly transitioned transgender sibling are finally thriving in the household that used to be ruled by dad. HIR (a gender pronoun pronounced here) is a metaphor for both gender and place, and the play will have audiences crying in laughter and sympathy as they attempt to discover if we can all adapt to live here, now. Mac […] isn’t so much remaking the world in his own image as he is addressing subjects that remain, remarkably, underplayed on the American stage: what bodies mean and what stories women are allowed to tell or perform. – The New Yorker A crackling production of a remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity. – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
