In this rebellious and cheeky play, a gang of girls engage in normal teenage things: falling in love, experimenting with drugs, worshipping Pablo Escobar...okay, maybe not so normal. Suspended high above reality in a treehouse, 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?

The Improper Bostonian named Alexis Scheer "Rising Theater Star" in the 2018 Boston's Best Issue.
