Real Women Have Curves Opens Sept. 10

Sept. 5, 2004 – Caribbean Community Theatre presents Real Women have Curves from Sept. 10 through Sept. 19. This play by Josefina Lopez is an adult comedy. Set in a tiny sewing factory in East Los Angeles., this is the story of five full-figured Mexican-American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. And while they work, hiding from the INS, they talk…about their husbands and lovers, their children, their dreams for the future. The story is told from the point of view of Ana, the youngest among them. Just graduated from high school, Ana dreams of getting out of the barrio and going off to college and becoming a famous writer.
