Our Dear Dead Drug Lord Presented by Zoetic Stage and Arsht Center

In this New York Times Critic’s Pick by South Florida’s own Alexis Scheer, four teenage girls gather in a Miami treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or just each other? Whiplashing between laugh-out-loud humor and stop-you-in-your-tracks drama, this wicked new play explores the darkest corners of the human heart.

Theatre Scene called the play "the work of a born playwright and a unique new voice." Scheer is a Miami native and New World School of the Arts alum. She holds a BFA in musical theater from The Boston Conservatory and an MFA in playwriting from Boston University.

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. Take a rollercoaster ride through the dark and dangerous mind of the modern American teenage girl by a gifted Miami playwright.
