This funny and charming play by Josefina Lopez, based on her personal experiences, deals with the immigration experience in East Los Angeles in 1987. It takes place in a tiny sewing factory during the summer and centers on five Mexican-American women who are just barely getting by, each haunted by her immigrant status. The youngest of the full-figured women is Ana, who has big dreams of going to college to become a writer. She writes in her journal while working at the factory, documenting the ups and downs of each character and revealing some painful truths. When the play opens, the women are working against a deadline as they get dresses ready to be sold. This situation puts pressure on Ana's older sister, who owns the shop.
Real Women Have Curves celebrates women's bodies, their individual and collective power, and the bonding that takes place when they are challenged to succeed.
