Why See Hir?
aRTHUR Darvill leads a new black comedy
Past Doctor Who companion, former lead of the West End's hit musical Once and now lead of Taylor Mac's UK premiere play Hir, Arthur Darvill heads back to the stage, this time at the newly reopened Bush Theatre. Mac's outrageous and uproarious black comedy takes on a brand-new tack of the dysfunctional family theme. First premiering at New York's Playwright Horizons in 2015, this comedy drama will leave your jaw hanging in disbelief, and your ribs aching from guilty laughter.
Darvill plays Isaac, recently discharged from the US Marines, who finds out that a new war has broken out - under his own roof. His mother Paige has decided not to care for his father anymore, and has turned their decades-old routine completely on its head. His sister Maxine, has transitioned into a man called Max, and his father has tumbled from the glory of being main breadwinner into a pitiful, clown-faced invalid. It's family dysfunction at it's most raw, shocking - and funny as hell.
