Sky Performing Arts presents:
“Real Women have Curves”
Featuring one of meetup’s own members – Gwen!
This is the story of Ana, a first generation Mexican-American teenager on the verge of becoming a woman. She lives in the predominately Latino community of East Los Angeles. Freshly graduated from high school, Ana receives a full scholarship to Columbia University. Her very traditional, old-world parents feel that now is the time for Ana to help provide for the family, not the time for college. Torn between her mainstream ambitions and her cultural heritage she agrees to work with her mother at her sister’s downtown LA sewing factory. Over the summer she learns to admire the hardworking team of women who teach her solidarity and teamwork. Still at odds with what her mother expects of her, Ana realizes that leaving home to continue her education is essential to finding her place proudly in the world as an American and Chicana.
*Adult content, so not recommended for children under 16*
Opening night is pay what you can. “Real Women have Curves” runs Feb 26th – Mar 14th, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.
Let’s meet in the lobby around 7:30pm. I’m sure it will be festival seating, so this way we can all sit together.
