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.
Check out images and info from the 2015 world premiere of Hir at Playwright's Horizons: https://www.playwrightshorizons.org/shows/plays/hir/

This Episode's Panel:
Portfolio Day is a Baltimore-based group combining synth-pop, rock and dance elements; a post religious experiment.
Joseph & The Beasts traffic in counter-rhythms that build from muted valleys to fevered crescendos. Shifts in time give way to sprawling valleys of fuzz-drenched keyboards, before soaring vocals erupt into a fervor-filled maelstrom.
Hollywood Blanks is operatic rock and roll that never quite lost it roots, yet all the while, displays a willingness to tinker with and push the antes of genre and feel. Honed in by years of live performances, Hollywood Blanks shows are highly theatrical, with each band member playing the part not just on their instruments, but also with a unique personality from song to song.
50 Foot Woman one of the many musical incarnations of Rahne Alexander. A prominent figure in the local arts and music scene, Rahne has something to say and you definitely want to listen.
$5 ***** All ages!
Performing as 50'♀, I've got a surprise or two in store for this one -- no hints just yet but trust and believe this will be a special night and a unique opportunity!
Featuring poetry & live music throughout the night to showcase some local trans talent; as well as food made by some of our fantastic volunteers & dedicated staff. Aside from that, we have each other! --if you’d like, reach out to someone tonight, ask them their name & pronouns & you might make a new friend!
Featuring performances by:
And more TBA!
