About

Emmy and Golden Globe award winner, and Academy Award nominee Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives, Transamerica) makes her UK stage debut as the radical matriarch Paige in this disarmingly funny and strikingly original comedy. Named ‘one of the most exciting theatre artists of our time’ by Time Out New York, Pulitzer and Tony-nominee Taylor Mac explodes the dysfunctional family drama and reinvents it for our times.

Isaac, the prodigal son, returns from a war zone to discover his family home has been transformed by a domestic revolution. The patriarchy has fallen, and Paige has been liberated from an oppressive marriage. Enlisting her newly-out transgender teenager as an ally, Paige is now on a crusade to tear apart the old regimes. But as they soon realise, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.


In a revival by critically-acclaimed director Steven Kunis, Hir grapples with a family in flux, as they attempt to build a brave new world out of the pieces of the old.

‘A remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity.’ New York Times on the 2015 production at Playwrights Horizons, Manhattan

★★★★★ ‘Taylor Mac’s Hir is more than a comedy about gender. It proves the potential of theatre.’ The Guardian on the 2017 production at Belvoir Street Theatre, Sydney
