EMPANADA FOR A DREAM

Genre: Solo Performance
©Allen Tannenbaum
Written and Performed by Juan Francisco Villa, Directed by Alex Levy

Downtown on Allen Street -- Everybody’s blasting – Bacchata. Merengue. Salsa.  Everybody’s cooking – Plantains. Paella. Empanadas.  Boys play Baseball, Football, Skully, Johnny on the Pony.  And this girl – the most beautiful girl – watches from a window. EMPANADA FOR A DREAM is a poignant and entertaining portrait of family and neighborhood – set against the secret that destroys it all.  It’s a story about growing up.  It’s a story about getting out. And coming back -- to one boy’s Lower East Side.

Founded in 2012, Ballybeg is a new non-profit theatre company committed to working in spaces where the barriers between the show and the audience can be eliminated. By presenting new plays (and American classics) in intimate venues, it’s Ballybeg’s goal to make the deepest possible connection with its audience.

Regarding this project, Producer John Adams says: “This extraordinary piece is in development – in fact, it’s going on to a major Latino Theatre Festival in Chicago this summer. It was Juan who graciously offered to provide us with this, our first show. Ballybeg is proud to be part of the journey of the play and to share it with our audience.”
