Final shows of HIR

We’ve loved having Hir in our big little theatre, and going by the “anarchic volleys of laughter” coming from sold-out performances, we think you’ve loved it, too.
Hir must close on March 4, and we don’t want you to miss out. There are a handful of tickets left for the remaining shows and we’ve even added an extra matinee performance on Saturday, March 3 due to popular demand!

“Hir is an outstanding piece of contemporary theatrical writing…punchy, accessible and confronting theatre which throws up controversial questions. The acting is outstanding and it is a triumph by the director, Daniel Clarke.”
– ★★★★★, Arts Hub

“Whip-smart and subversive, provocative and ambitious.” – ★★★★, The Age


There are only nine performances left, so make sure you get your tickets to this “punchy and confronting” work from the mind of the visionary Taylor Mac. Book now!
