Written by Virginia Grise and Irma Mayorga, ‘The Panza Monologues’ is based on women’s stories about their panzas—tú sabes—that roll of belly we all try to hide. ‘The Panza Monologues’ features the words of Chicanas speaking with humor and candor. Their stories boldly place the panza front and center as a symbol that reveals the lurking truths about women’s thoughts, lives, loves, abuses, and living conditions.

Since its inception in San Antonio, Panza has played across the nation (East, West, North, South) but now it is coming home to where it all began. Teatro Audaz is putting it back into the bodies and lives of San Antonio women and onto San Antonio land to revisit and reconnect with the lives of women in San Antonio who first inspired this project/play. They bring it back to San Antonio to explore the issues of obesity, diabetes, food deserts…income inequality, all STILL prevalent in San Antonio…ten years on, what remains the same? What do we still need to change?
