Exorcising the patriarchy.

In this fierce and feverish dark comedy that exploded Off-Broadway right before the zombie plague hit us, 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? A dizzying, terrifying, and hilarious roller coaster ride through the dangers and damages of girlhood – the teenage wasteland has perhaps never been laid so bare nor been so much twisted fun. And just in time for Halloween. 

“...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
