About this show

Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from Afghanistan under unusual circumstances to help take care of his ailing father, who once ruled the house with an iron first, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mother. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, and with Isaac's newly out transgender sibling Max 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. It leaves so many of our so-called normative and progressive ideas about gender, family, the middle class — and cleaning — in hilarious and ultimately tragic disarray.
