In a tiny factory in East L.A., five full-figured Latina employees work to deliver an impossible order. As the threat of deportation and cultural pressures mount, the women must navigate issues of self-image while uniting to achieve their goals. Real Women Have Curves is a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience that celebrates real women’s bodies, the power of women, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together.
About the Playwright
Josefina López is best known for authoring the play and co-authoring the film Real Women Have Curves. Although Real Women Have Curves is López’ most recognized work, it is only one of many literary and artistic works she has created since her artistic career began at 17 years old. Born in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, in 1969, López was 5 years old when she and her family immigrated to the United States and settled in the East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. She was undocumented for 13 years before receiving amnesty in 1987, and she eventually became a U.S. citizen in 1995. López has been an activist and has been doing public speaking for more than 20 years and has lectured on various topics including Chicano theatre, women’s history issues and minority representation in cinema at more than 200 universities including Yale, Dartmouth and USC.
