[ANA] Female, Mexican American, to play 18 – 20, sister of Estela, daughter of Carmen. Pretty and plump. She is a recent high school graduate and a young feminist. Smart, opinionated, kind of a dreamer but very practical. She reads a lot, like every kid at her age. She loves comics, Sylvia Plath, Dorothy Parker, Anais Nin and Anne Rice. She’s a nerd, a secret punk rocker and a Capricorn. She is waiting on her financial aid to come through, so she can attend college. Ana wants to be different from the older women in her family, so she purposefully does things different. She sometimes thinks she's better than "all of this” but has a secret appreciation for her culture. Speaks Spanish.  

[CARMEN] Female, Mexican American, 40 – 50, mother of Ana and Estela. Plain and plump. She loves her daughters and loves her family. She is your typical old school, very traditional Mexican Mama. She has a talent for storytelling. She knows the ways of the world and how things should be done because this is the way they've always been done. She doesn’t resent Ana’s ambition for wanting more, it's just that she worries that the potential of failure will hurt her.

[PANCHA] Female, Mexican American, 30s-40s, plus size with a plus size personality, a friend of Carmen and Estela and a worker at the Garcia Sewing Factory. Smart, sassy and strong-willed. She is a very dedicated worker in the factory, says what she means and takes no bullshit from anyone. She is very comfortable with herself despite the fact that she cannot have children, something her social conditioning has raised her to expect from life. If she'd had more opportunities as a younger woman, she would be the foreman or the boss of something. Sees Ana's potential for better things and supports it. Speaks Spanish.
