About this Event

Amando Houser who is 'particularly funny' (Vulture) and ‘wild and hilarious’ (Staff Picks)  invites you to an allegorical, unhinged, and absurd clown hour of self discovery. Inspired by the "witch hunt" on trans rights in the United States and Houser’s experience in junior sports living outside the gender binary in the early 2000s and 2010s. DeliaDelia! is a witch from the swamps who happens to be as nasty on the eyes as she is with a basketball. Cursed to find a husband, will she find love by the strike of midnight? Or, doomed to be turned into a serpent with no genitalia forever? This performance involves audience participation and strong language/swearing. 18+ recommended. 

Doors: 7pm

Show: 7:30pm
