The popular comedy play, Las Nuevas Tamaleras, written by Latina playwright, Alicia Mena opens the 2022 season at The Carver Cultural Arts Center.
This charming Christmas play about culture and traditions has entertained audiences for more than twenty five years! Las Nuevas Tamaleras is considered as much a tradition as the “Nutcracker”, “A Christmas Carol”, and “It’s a Wonderful Life”, here in San Antonio, with people anxiously awaiting its return year after year. It has become an annual holiday tradition along with the annual “Tamalada.”
The play captures three Latinas in an uproariously comical attempt at making tamales for the first time. Things become even more entertaining when the spirits of two seasoned tamaleras appear to help the novices make the perfect tamal!
