A sticky, spooky horror comedy about gender reveal parties, demons from hell, and above all, a Gay Witch Sex Cult (a sex cult for gay witches)
As Kaelan Trough and his husband celebrate the gender reveal of their as yet unborn child, they invite their nearest and dearest for an unforgettable party. However, the party takes a sinister turn as demons are summoned, Prosecco is drunk, and prophecies are fulfilled. Kaelan soon realises that he is merely a pawn in the machinations of a powerful, terrifying and sexy organisation, and he will be lucky to escape with his life.
It’s time to let fear come inside you.

Silly but insanely smart at its core- Spy in the Stalls FIVE STARS
Andrew ... is wickedly smart. The choreographed style of comedic timing works every time and is a thrill to watch.- Theatre Weekly
