Price from $ 37.40

“Stop behaving like a man!” “We are men!” Isaac gets home from serving in the marines to find war has broken out back home. In a nondescript town somewhere in Central Valley – America, Isaac’s mom Paige is blowing up entrenched routines. Fed up with domestic patriarchy, Paige has stopped washing, cleaning and caring for their ailing father, who recently suffered a stroke. She reigns supreme. Ally to their mother’s new regime is Isaac’s sibling Max. Only last time Isaac checked, Max was Maxine. Once the breadwinner, Isaac’s dad has toppled from the head of the household to the bottom of the pile – a make-upped puppet emasculated by Paige once and for all. In a cheap house made of plywood and glue, notions of masculinity and femininity become weapons with which to defeat the old order. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.
