Our Dear Dead Drug Lord

Our Dear Dead Drug Lord follows a gang of girls who do normal teenage things: fall in love, experiment with drugs, worship Pablo Escobar...okay, maybe not so normal. Suspended high above reality in a treehouse in Florida, the girls try to resurrect the spirit of Pablo. But are they just messing with each other, or could they actually be messing with a higher spirit?

    I just caught a reading of this play, and holy,,,! This is a fast paced, often hilarious, always exciting exploration of America today through the eyes of the generation growing after 9/11. Alexis has created something unique here, and if you have a chance to read/ see it, you need to.
