Delilah by the Hour
premiered March 2020
You know the story: Samson and Delilah. Hair, eye gouging, bargains with Philistines - a secret divulged, for a price.
A ticket is $25. It's an hour-long show. That's 42 cents a minute. For $25, you could buy breakfast. Maybe even a coffee too.
So how do you know it's worth it?
Delilah by the Hour is a biblically charged interrogation of the economics of attention, identity fetishism and our cultural obsession with dangerous women.
