SheWorXX, a local women's collaborative of theatre-makers, is hosting a benefit reading of award-winning playwright Elaine Romero's play, The Fat-Free Chicana and the Snow Cap Queen, on Saturday, May 2 at 7:30 at the YWCA, 525 Bonita Ave, Tucson, AZ 85745

About the play:

The trickster Snow Cap Queen (a.k.a. Lard Lady) works magic on the women of a family owned Mexican restaurant as they negotiate recipes, body-image and cultural identity across generational divides.

SheWorXX is an evolving community of playwrights, directors, dramaturgs, actors and designers building gender-parity and sisterhood in theatre, locally and globally.

Benefit proceeds will support the development of SheWorXX as an emerging arts organization incubated at the YWCA, by funding the development of a performance space, the engagement of local, national and international theatre-artists, the mentoring of young and emerging theatre artists, and the production of works by women.

Come meet Elaine Romero and the playwrights of SheWorXX, bid at the silent auction, and enjoy beer, wine and delicious food available at YWCA's Café.
