“Four top-notch performances and a memorable debut from a playwright whose risk-taking talent is something to keep an eye on. Our Dear Dead Drug Lord should make your list of plays to see this season.”
In this fierce and feverish comedy, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned tree house 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?

For the world premiere production from WP Theater and Second Stage, breakout playwright Alexis Scheer joined forces with director Whitney White and a cast that included Carmen Berkeley, Alyssa May Gold, Rebecca Jimenez and Malika Samuel.
