The Story

It’s 2021 and with liberal politics again on the upswing, Angel and Carla have received a diversity grant to put on a dramatic TV pilot entitled OVERLOOKED LATINAS. As they struggle to realize their vision, they bring on stars, get embroiled in lesbian love-triangles, and fight with their executive producer, landing in the world of slapstick comedy.

If Lily Tomlin and Hunter Thompson had a love child, and she was raised Latina and queer, you’d have someone a lot like Tina D’Elia. Her imagination is unbridled and her characters are flawless!
— David Ford, Master of Solo Performance/Award winning Playwright/Director
Writer-performer Tina D’Elia’s, solo comedy spins a queer and ethnically rich world - D’Elia, proves a sharp and engaging performer, her characters tending to be both endearing and amusingly full-bodied.
— Robert Avila, San Francisco Bay Guardian
Tina D’Elia’s newest one-woman show celebrates queer culture, friendship and Latinx history. It also defies all theater going expectations of what makes a quality experience.
