By Elio Leturia— TWO POOR CHICANAS living in Venice, California imagining they are in the Italian Venezia. One thinks she is Dolores del Río; the other, María Félix, the most revered Mexican film stars of all times. Dolores started her career in Hollywood, and María worked Spain and France. Both were top stars during the Mexican Golden Cinema Era.
In this play, they are not women but transvestites who live their lifes through their idols movies.
