Real Women Have Curves, Depot Theatre
Westport On Friday, Aug. 24, the Depot Theatre opened the final production of its 2012 Summer Season with Josefina Lopez’s coming-of-age story, “Real Women Have Curves.”
Audiences have been moved by this provocative and touching tale of five full-figured Mexican-American women racing against impossible deadlines to keep their tiny factory from going under.
“This play’s powerful message isn’t lost amidst the humor and camaraderie of the characters onstage,” Artistic Director Shami McCormick said. “The spirit and struggle of the Mexican-American culture is a valuable voice that we are proud to put on the Depot stage.”
“Real Women Have Curves” runs until Sunday, September 9. Tickets are $27 each and can be purchased online at depottheatre.org, or by calling the box office at 962-4449. Parental guidance is suggested.
The Depot Theatre plans to stay busy during the fall and winter months with playreadings, gallery receptions, monthly bingo, and other fundraisers.
