Nicky Endres pulls out all the stops when performing this horror story about a haunted house and the shocking trauma it inflicts on three people: trans woman Alice and her friends, Ila and Hannah. The remarkable British accent Endres assumes in their dialogue aligns with the British terms found in the text. Endres infuses insecurity and a feeling of worthlessness as Alice revisits memories, verbalizing her musings. Endres's androgynous character voicings swing widely from soft, whispery, and loving when Alice talks to Ila and Hannah to intense, growling, and threatening when the house-ghost attacks Hannah and reshapes her body into a hideous form. This is the stuff nightmares are made of, and the content warning at the beginning of the story should be heeded. S.D.B.
