Presented by the Cara Mía Theatre Co. and based on the award-winning Chicano novel by Rudolfo Anaya, Bless Me, Ultima is a story about faith, healing and community reflective of Mexican-American cultures throughout the southwest United States. Performed in English. Recommended for ages 7 and older.

Antonio Márez is 6 years old when Ultima enters his life. She is a curandera, one who heals with herbs and magic. "We cannot let her live her last days in loneliness," says Antonio's mother. "It is not the way of our people," agrees his father. Ultima comes to live with Antonio's family in New Mexico and graces him with the courage to face the challenges of childhood. Under Ultima’s guidance, Tony will probe the family ties that bind him, and he will find in himself the magical secrets of his ancestors.
