Roxy Regional Theater’s Roxy Reads Series Presents “Empanada Loca”, Wednesday

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheaterClarksville, Tennessee – Take a break from our life-size productions and join us as we continue our Roxy Reads series with a reading of “Empanada Loca” by Aaron Mark this Wednesday September 29, 2021 at 7:00 PM. It’s the perfect opportunity to sit down and listen to what makes great rooms work: history.

Now living deep in Manhattan in an abandoned subway tunnel with the Mole People, a very hungry Dolores recounts her years selling weed with her boyfriend, her return to Washington Heights after thirteen years in prison, her chance reunion with an old stoner friend who lets him give massages for money in the basement under his empanadas shop, and the bloodbath that made him flee underground.

Loosely based on the legend of Sweeney Todd and starring Yarissa Tiara Millan, with stage directions read by Stephen Shore, this delightfully spooky solo piece is a contemporary Grand Guignol horror in the style of Spalding Gray.

Stick around after reading for an interview with our acting company. We will discuss your thoughts, impressions and analysis of the selected artwork, then our professional company will weigh their opinions to create a dialogue about the artwork.

Tickets are $ 25 and can be reserved online through the button below, by phone at 931.645.7699 or at the theater during regular box office hours (9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and one hour before the curtain). Military and APSU students can receive two tickets for the price of one.
