Chela is the story of rape, domestic violence, emotional abuse but with a lot of Laughs. Yes...A lot of laughs.

If you came to the Fringe to see a powerful performance, DON'T MISS CHELA!!! Dulce Maria Solis packs a powerful performance and uplifting journey into Chela. Just as Shakespeare lightens Hamlet's load with the grave digger, so does Dulce deliver some hilarious characters throughout to keep the audience afloat. A true heroine's journey, you find yourself cheering for her mother's first and victorious orgasm! BRAVO!!!... full review

CHELA the play, it's just an extraordinary one woman show played and written by the actress Dulce Maria Solis and is the true story of her own mother. Although is has the same or similar plots, situation and dramatic events that include violence, verbal, mental, and physical abuse of many women in other plays, books and movies due to a lack of education, power, and love it also strongly deals with taboos like sex and sexuality in just 90 minutes, she makes you engage in her story, makes you be interested and wanting more and surprise you unexpectedly. Cant wait for the film. It would only make sense to make chela!!! Dulce will make you laugh, think, cry, look back at your past and think how bless you are and how lucky and happy you were t... full review

I don't know how to express the amazingness of this show, of Dulce Maria's performance and of the courage of Dulce and Chela to share their story so openly and truthfully, but I will try my best. This is the one show of the Fringe that I did not want to miss and I was blown away by it. Dulce Maria holds you captive from the moment she comes on stage and the emotion, intensity and truth with which she tells this story (her and her mother's true story) is breath-taking. A one woman show to rival all others. Absolute credit to Dulce Maria Solis for her outstanding performance & incredible writing & Todd Blakesley for his wonderful direction. Please do not miss this show.... full review
