Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

About This Show

In this fierce and feverish comedy from breakout playwright Alexis Scheer, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other?

Intimate in nature yet universal in its ability to explore the need to connect, the play is an unflinching and powerful reminder of what it means to be human. As it races to its startling conclusion, audiences will be left catching their breath. A rollercoaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood, Our Dear Dead Drug Lord proves navigating adolescence may be more perilous than communing with the dead.
