Deep underground, underneath the subways, Dolores is waiting to tell her story. A story of gentrification, survival, and murder inspired by the legend of Sweeney Todd, Empanada Loca is a solo Grand Guignol of one woman’s fight to survive in a bloody-minded world of reckless consumerism.
$20 / 90 minutes
Empanada Loca marks the inaugural production of Recondite Tourist Activities. We hope to produce visceral, dynamic, and character-driven narrative plays both written and devised that explore the fringes of life with empathy and craft. We live as a company somewhere between a B-movie and a broken heart.
