About: The play takes place in the Snowflake Inn in Tinsel, Texas where it's Christmas 365 days a year. It's four days before Christmas and a parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn and deck the halls with holiday hilarity. Trina, the harried yet upbeat innkeeper of this B&B, has more than she can handle coping with these nuttier-than-a-fruitcake lodgers.

About: Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this story is the outrageously funny story of five Mexican-American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. This play, a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience, celebrates real women's bodies, the power of women, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together.
