Eastern New Mexico University Department of Theatre and Digital Filmmaking presents a world premiere play Las Arañas Thursday, Feb. 28 through Sunday, March 3 at the University Theatre Center, Mainstage, Portales, New Mexico.
Journey to the mesas west of Albuquerque where old friends face new challenges, and learn the truth of what lies beneath. Las Arañas is a play about a cursed land that belongs to a line of curanderas (healers), who live side by side with the supernatural. Wronged women who are buried on their land are transformed into vengeful spider people who eat the guilty of the city. Follow young healer Luz Barela, as her life takes an unexpected turn when an old friend comes back to town. When she learns his plans to sell off the land she grew up on, the world changes for both of them. The spiders are awakened, and only blood can satisfy their hunger for revenge
