What would you do if you didn’t have a social security number? How far would you go for 9 precious digits that could change your life?
This hilarious and sharp exploration of the American Dream focuses on two sets of Mexican-American sisters; one assimilated into US mainstream culture, the other still struggling with their immigration status. Newly widowed Lily and her sister Nellie sit pretty in Lily’s picture perfect backyard – or so it seems – while the two Marias who work for them dream of nothing else but those nine precious digits.
Mingling a sassy comedy with a provocative immigration drama, Los Angeles-based Obie Award-winning Rodriguez illuminates pressing, universal issues about identity and privilege. Based on a real-life story, Living Large is presented in English with a sprinkle of Spanish.
Running time is 80 minutes. No intermission.
