After returning home from the wars, Isaac discovers that the house and family he knew have been upended. His once-timid mother is on a whirlwind crusade to subvert the patriarchy, his sister is now his genderqueer brother who refers to hirself in gender-neutral pronouns. Meanwhile, his stroke-ridden father slumps on the couch in a muumuu and clown makeup. As Isaac endeavors to restore structure to a household that he does not recognize, the family is forced to confront what it is to live in a new world when one is stuck in the past.  NOTE: contains strong language and adult situations.  “Hir” is pronounced “here.”
