Hir Tickets – Park Theatre

Critically acclaimed director Steven Kunis’ revival of Hir, charts the transition of a family forced to build a brave new world out of the fragmented pieces of the old at the Park Theatre.

Prodigal son Isaac returns home from the brutality of war, only to discover that his family home has been transformed by a domestic revolution.

His mother Paige has been liberated from an oppressive marriage, and the patriarchy has fallen. After enlisting Isaac’s newly-out transgender sibling as her ally, Paige embarks on a crusade to rip apart old regimes – but as you will discover in Taylor Mac’s strikingly original, disarmingly funny comedy, simply annihilating the past doesn’t always mean you are free from it.

Described by Time Out New York as ‘one of the most exciting theatre artists of our time’, Tony and Pulitzer -nominee Taylor Mac has demolished the classic dysfunctional family drama by turning it on its head.

The Park Theatre is the brainchild of Jez Bond, the Artistic Director who in 2009 discovered a disused office and realising its potential, engaged David Hughes Architects to research what ingredients made for the perfect theatre space. The Park Theatre complex occupies five floors which are all accessible by stairs and lifts and boasts two auditoriums that incorporate a 200-seat theatre (Park200), and (Park90), a smaller, intimate, and flexible 90-seat area.

The Ground floor features a high ceilinged café and bar space with a modern design that exposes the original architecture. Lighting features spell out words in ‘showbiz’ style light bulbs around the building for effect.
The Park Theatre is dog friendly, so do not be surprised by the presence of people’s pets during your visit.

Park200

The stalls section in Park200 sits on the lower ground level and has head-on views of the stage, with the circle level on the upper ground slightly above the stage that offers elevated views of the action.
The theatre is usually laid out in a thrust configuration with the stage sticking out towards the seating area. For some productions, there may be some extra seating to create an ‘in-the-round’ configuration.
The theatre has a capacity of up to 200 people with the stalls containing banks of bench seating with the left and right sections by the stage featuring 3 benches of 9-13 seats. The central block consists of 5 rows of 10-20 seats with the rows of benches raked to offer clear views of the stage so the back row of each seating bank sits on the same level as the entrance. The benches towards the back of the stalls are slightly longer, and in the front row, the stage sits directly in front of you at knee level.

Park90

The Park90 theatre space has a single entrance and is a flexible area, so the layout of the auditorium you enter depends upon the production. The room is cube-shaped and has a gantry that runs along two sides of the space at a raised level. Park90 has a capacity of between 75 and 90 people.
