About this show

Isaac, a veteran, returns to his childhood home and discovers that his family's been transformed. His timid mother, freed from the constraints of her marriage, has begun a crusade to subvert the patriarchy, and his sister has become a trans male anarchist who uses the pronouns ze and hir. Meanwhile, his abusive father now wears clown makeup and downs estrogen pills…against his will.

Obie Award-winner Taylor Mac's black comedy flips the script on gender power dynamics and asks a key question: does destroying the past really free you from it? It's a sly kitchen-sink drama covered in glitter, and you'll laugh your way through to an answer.
