It's the staircase in the woods again. You know the one. Mysterious, abandoned, the one everyone says you shouldn't climb. Well—maybe if you did, everything would be different. Maybe you would become something else entirely. Something you've always feared you secretly already were.

DeliaDelia! The Flat Chested Witch!

The NYC born and based clown Amando Houser is “particularly funny” (Vulture) and “not normal at all” (Philippe Gaulier) They are DeliaDelia! The Flat Chested Witch! She isn’t female but she does use she/her pronouns. She will defy all expectations and will go to ridiculous lengths to try to fit in— even if it kills her.

Four friends get laid off and take a road trip to see the Black Hole. At the center they find the Event Horizon. Crawl inside and save me a dance. Internal transformations become external. Let’s reckon with one another or become unrecognizable.
