Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

Produced in Association with IAMA Theatre Company

August 20 – September 17, 2023

Kirk Douglas Theatre

Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

4 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.

In this fierce and feverish world premiere 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 – the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun.
