ABOUT THE SHOW 

This is a comedy about immigration, beauty, weight, and female worth.

Ana just graduated from high school and wants to go to Columbia Universty to pursue her dream, but reality forces her work in her sister Estela’s small clothing factory for a less-than-minimum wage. As the story unfolds, we are introduced to three other strong and colorful women: Carmen, Ana and Estela’s overly critical mother, Pancha, who feels like less of a woman because she is barren, and Rosali, who survives on a diet of water and weight loss pills. The foreword motion in the play falls with the women having to create 100 dresses in less than a week for Bloomingdales, a company that is taking advantage of Estela’s immigrant status and fear of deportation. The rest of the women, haunted by their old status as undocumented immigrants, are forced to break the trauma, thoughts, and fears of being undocumented that continues to be tightly weaved in their minds.
