Pia (Pisay Pao) knows hardly anything about her mother’s experience fleeing Cambodia in 1975, amid the country’s deadly takeover by the Khmer Rouge. But the pain of her mother’s experience has shaped Pia’s life, like an imprint, she says, seared into her cells. Pia’s mother (Sonnie Brown) carries herself like a ghost, looking lost behind the eyes and staunchly resisting any reminders of Cambodia. Chanse’s play shifts back and forth over a 10-year span in Pia’s study of memory and its potential for manipulation.

From the new restaurant, Coyotzi is now making a full menu of Mexican breakfast dishes — chilaquiles, eggs bathed in red and green salsas — plus tacos, tortas, and quesadillas. Garcia attributed the changes to an identity crisis at the tamal cart: New Yorkers don’t know Evelia’s, he says, at least not by name. “People in the community, they called it Los Tamales de Junction or Los Tamales de Roosevelt,” alluding to cart’s cross streets in Corona, Queens. State senator Ramos, who’s been frequenting the tamal cart for years, is also an outspoken fan. Despite the acknowledgments, the 24-year-old general manager says the East Elmhurst storefront is the beginning of something bigger for the tamal business.
