World premiere opens Friday, August 2, 2019.

A horror comedy about a small group of incompetent devil-worshippers who are preparing for the birth of the Dark Lord when an newcomer arrives, thinking she’s been invited to an old friend’s baby shower.  Girl talk and plans for the “Hell Feast” lead to secrets coming out and a struggle for power, with surprising results.  Plus, there’s a talking goat … so that’s pretty cool.

Advisory: This play contains moments of blood and violence.
