Newly enlightened Paige is determined to forge a deliriously liberated world for her two wayward children: Isaac, recently discharged from the Marines under dubious circumstances; and Max, tender, jaded, and sculpting a third-sex gender identity for hirself. Hailed as “one of this country’s most heroic and disarmingly funny playwrights” (American Theatre Magazine), Magic welcomes back renowned theatre artist Taylor Mac (The Lily’s Revenge) with this hilarious drama.
“the best Bay Area play I’ve seen this season. In several seasons, in fact… Niegel Smith is the perfect director for what Mac calls ‘absurd realism.’ Though every gag line draws a laugh, each stammer, brief pause or elongated silence also hits a dramatic bulls-eye. And Smith’s pacing is spot on.”
