Las Mujeres Verdaderas Tienen Curvas
Real Women Have Curves is a stage play by Josefina Lopez and is set in a tiny sewing factory in East Los Angeles in September 1987. It's marked by the issues of gender politics and the Latina immigrant experience. The story is told from the point of view of Ana, the youngest employee at the factory. Ambitious and bright, Ana yearns to go to college, but doesn't have the money. The action follows the course of a summer at the factory, as the women talk about their lives, loves and deepest desires while attempting to meet impossible production deadlines. Recommended for teens and adults interested in culture, Real Women Have Curves plays the Aurora stage April 10-26. This is the first time this play is presented in Georgia.
