[Hir: gender neutral possessive pronoun used by people with alternative gender identities. A combined form of the devices 'his' and 'her' with the similar usage in referring to a subject (or possessive, attributive) of both, either, or neither gender.] Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mom. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally, she’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it. Springfield area premiere. This production contains mature language and situations.
