“This is who we are, mama. Real Women.”

"A combination of a good script by an excellent and informed playwright and this superior cast makes for a delightful 90 minutes of entertainment and, perhaps, a bit of insight as well."

"Director Gustavo B. Schmidt found a perfect cast, courageous in several respects, willing to bare their souls, their passions, and their bodies.." Triangle Arts & Entertainment, By Martha Keravuori and Chuck Galle

Director Gustavo Schmidt shares his thoughts about the show on WHUP “Lights Up” Click here

Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., the outrageously funny story of five full-figured Mexican-American women who are trying to keep their tiny factory from going under. And while they work, and hide from the INS, they talk... about their husbands and lovers, their children, their dreams for the future. This microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience celebrates real women's bodies, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together.
