Stray Cat is thrilled to continue our 20th Anniversary Season with four incredibly fierce young actresses - all making their Stray Cat debuts - in the second ever national production of the NYT Critic’s Pick, John Gassner Award-winning, Kilroy’s List member, LTC Carnaval of New Latinx Work finalist, and Relentless Award semifinalist - Alexis Scheer’s pitch black comedy OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD.
All in time for Halloween.

OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD
by Alexis Scheer
Tempe Center for the Arts Studio Theatre
Directed by Virginia Olivieri
October 29 - November 13, 2021

This production would be rated R for adult content, adult language, stage horror, and two acts of extreme violence.

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.

“...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
