About the Play

Borderline is set in the cotton fields of Socorro, Texas, where four Latino teens threatened by a mysterious creature will have to rely on each other to escape the desert alive. It will take made-up myths, stories of the past, and a rendition of La Llorona to defeat the very real monster stalking children in the borderlands. Community discussions will dive into real-life issues on the border, and school workshops will explore "trickster tales", myths and legends. Borderline was first presented by Milagro with Teatros Unidos in INGENIO Milagro 2018 as a live staged reading.
