Now living deep under 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 fortuitous reunion with an old stoner friend who lets her
give massages for cash in the basement under his empanada shop, and the
bloodbath that sent her fleeing underground. Loosely inspired by the
legend of Sweeney Todd, EMPANADA LOCA is contemporary Grand Guignol
horror in the style of Spalding Gray.
