Hir by Taylor Mac at Defunkt Theatre

  " Klaus-Vineyard and the cast have honored Mac’s play, but kicked it up a notch with their with great attention to making the characters’ internal conflicts seem real. Access is a theme around which much of Taylor Mac’s work revolves. Defunkt lets you in for a while to a version of Mac’s past, through a joy ride of the transformative power of play. " -Oregon Artswatch

Defunkt is thrilled to bring one of the most celebrated and exciting plays of the past ten years to Portland. As Charles Isherwood of the New York Times writes “Perhaps no play this year inspired a greater sense of awe than Taylor Mac’s audacious dive into the dysfunctional-family playpen of American theater.…in his depiction of a semi-mad housewife with a transgender son, another son reeling from three years in combat in Afghanistan, and a husband whose disabling stroke has rendered him nearly speechless….”

Defunkt’s own Andrew Klaus -Vineyard directs this Portland Premiere from a unique, exhilarating voice in American theater.
