CHELA Synopsis
Based on a True Story

Orgasming is something CHELA does when she’s bored. At least that’s what she tells the Oklahoma motel handyman that just gave her, her first orgasm, which she so innocently mistakes for peeing on herself. And although asking this man to sleep with her isn’t the most ethical way for this married woman to sexually heal, it is a major stepping-stone for this domestic violence survivor.

CHELA, based on a true story of violence, love, and lunacy, is an intimate staged biography written and performed by her daughter, Dulce Maria Solis.
