OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD

by Alexis Scheer

(LIMITED ENGAGEMENT June 9 - June 26)

 

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? A roller coaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood – the teenage wasteland – has never been so much twisted fun.

 

Critic’s Pick! “Highly entertaining – equally funny and scary – the play starts off as a hoot and winds up a primal scream. They’re throwing quite a seance at the McGinn/Cazale Theater.” – The New York Times

 

Four Stars! “Just when you think you know where the play is heading, there’s a disorienting coup de théâtre that leaves you shaken. Our Dear Dead Drug Lord isn’t for the faint of heart, but neither is coming of age.” 

– Time Out New York

 

“As funny as it is violent and dark... Our Dear Dead Drug Lord is not quiet, small, or apologetic. It is loud and messy and truthful. It is incredibly complicated and a thing of extreme beauty. It is everything in women that society tells them they need to repress, and in this I found it incredibly enjoyable and inspiring.” – New York Theatre Guide


“An imaginative and ultimately savage new play... An offbeat Mean Girls sort of dramedy that unexpectedly concludes in a violent burst of magical realism.” – New York Stage Review
