Gorda, Sara Ornelas (New York, NY)

  • Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston 3400 S Main St. Houston, TX 77002 (map)

Gorda is a one woman show written by Sara Ornelas. Through music, storytelling, and theater, she examines various stages of her life when her talent for vulnerability has kicked me in the face. She celebrates her Latinx roots in a Mariachi suit lip sync and pays tribute to her hometown, Brownsville, Texas.To demonstrate her anxiety she personifies insecurity and judgement as two Mean Girls pretending to be her friends. By performing some of her deepest fears, Sara hopes to bring comfort to anyone who has eaten a whole half gallon of mint chocolate chip ice cream in one sitting...twice.
