The Texas Chili Queens
November 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - November 17, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
Join Pollyanna Theatre Company for this new play about the history of some amazing Texas women by Kathleen Fletcher. Allie, a curious 5th grader, has one week to find out about her family’s history for a school heritage day presentation. Pestering her abuela (grandmother) for family stories leads to a discovery—Allie is a descendant of one of the original Chili Queens! This group of entrepreneurial women supported their families by selling chili from sundown to sun up in the plazas of San Antonio during the 19th and early-20th centuries. Allie’s links to the past open up her future.
