Tony Award nominees Daphne Rubin-Vega and Tom Hewitt will reprise their roles in Aaron Mark’s Empanada Loca and Another Medea, respectively, in two one-night-only readings October 28 and November 4. The special events will be in celebration of Halloween and Mark’s newest psychological thriller, Squeamish, now playing Off-Broadway starring Alison Fraser.
In Empanada Loca, a woman named Dolores recalls her disturbing past on the streets and in a prison cell, as well as her involvement in a cannibalistic empanada shop. Rubin-Vega will perform a reading of the play October 28 at 3 PM at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row.
Another Medea tells the story of a charismatic and enigmatic New York actor who recounts in gruesome detail how his obsessions with a wealthy doctor and the myth of Medea led to unspeakable events. Hewitt will perform a reading of the piece November 4 at 3 PM at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row.
Mark’s newest solo play, Squeamish, opened Off-Broadway October 15 at the Beckett Theatre. In the horror play, Fraser plays a psychoanalyst and long-time recovering alcoholic from the Upper West Side who finds herself in the South Plains of Texas—“off her meds, after her nephew’s suicide.”
