Curanderas & Chocolate: Cuentos of a Latina life

Just in time to remind us that celebrating and honoring our Mexican roots as a city requires more than confetti, Coronas and crass crowds, Patricia Zamora’s new play will make its San Antonio debut this weekend. Curanderas & Chocolate: Cuentos of a Latina Life is Zamora’s one-woman show that, through the use of autobiography alongside imaginative storytelling, explores faith, curanderismo and evolving cultural conceptions of sickness and wellness. The show, which finds Zamora working with local dramatist and Current contributor Jade Esteban Estrada as a creative consultant, features nine short vignettes and Zamora playing seven different characters. That makes for a fast-paced and thoroughly engrossing experience. Zamora has said of the play that she “began writing these stories to honor the experiences in [her] own life while also highlighting [her] beautiful culture.”

“Comfort Cafe is one of my favorite spots in San Antonio! I highly recommend joining the Yelp Waitlist early before you head over, because it's such a popular place for brunch on the weekends… The pancakes are huge but they are so fluffy and tasty… Don't skip out on the hashbrown casserole either, I mean what's better than potato, cheese, and bacon?” - Elite Yelper Sarah G
