Playread With Me: Hir by Taylor Mac

I'll be moderating the discussion after the Playread With Me reading of Taylor Mac's Hir!


Join us for the second Playread With Me event of 2018! We'll gather at the Windup Space to read Taylor Mac's Hir and then launch into a moderated discussion!

If you'd like to read, come by around 6:00PM to get a part. The reading will begin at 6:30PM (those who don't want to read are welcome to listen!).

FREE EVENT (you purchase your own drinks and can throw in $5 for Joe's Squared pizza if you want food!) 

The Play:
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.

More about Playread With Me:
This playreading meets bookclub invites you to grab a drink, take on a role in the play, and join actors around the table to read a script dealing with identity in America. Then we'll talk about the themes and their relevance to you and Baltimore.
