Why See Our Dear Dead Druglord?
The World Premiere Of An Insightful New Comedy
After a critically acclaimed workshop production in Boston in the summer of 2018, rising star theatremaker and playwright Alexis Scheer's tour-de-force comedy makes its hotly anticipated world premiere during Second Stage's 2019/20 season. Hailed as an exciting mix between Mean Girls and Narcos, the wickedly funny coming of age tale 'Our Dear Dead Druglord' explores contemporary girlhood, societal expectations and the female bond with startling results.
The remarkable story follows a group of teenage girlfriends, who do many normal teenage things - falling in love, experimentation with drugs... And perhaps a few not so normal things, like practicing witchcraft and attempting to commune with the spirit of infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar. Lead by a butch queer Latina, the Dead Leaders Club grapples with the aftermath of the 2008 presidential election as they discover who they are. This girl gang has teeth!

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
