Gorditas is a theater play written by Gustavo Ott.
Four female characters, four women with different attitudes, life insights and more or less ingenuity, cleverness and perspicacity, use the weapons of friendship, ambition and treason as hammers, to establish a struggle to reach the potential and the rise of recognition.
Satirical comedy about body cult, diets, image on business and the success, where the most important thing is “the end justifies the means”, but overall the FUN!
Directed by María Jesús Varona, Loly Rodríguez and Ángeles Varona. It’s a new theater production of El comodín Stage Company.
