We're with her.

After learning of her family's murder by the local cartel leader, Luz Estrada volunteers for her town's long-vacant position of sheriff. With her new authority, she enlists the citizens of her town to fight a war against the drug lord that destroyed everything they held dear.

Mercy Street is proud to present the world premiere of resident playwright Dusty Wilson's modern-day adaptation of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, set in the cartel wars of Northern Mexico.
