Adeje's Easter Plays being serious

This Easter spectacle where the last hours of the life of Jesus Christ are acted out is not for the faint heart. This is realism or realistic street art at its best where make believe acting even simulates bloody scenes such as Christ's crucification.

Rising numbers of spectators my even surpass last year's record high of over 20000. The spectacle's Christian message warrants any details of acted out cruelty in the name of art.

Never mind that no real blood is being spilled. So they say...

Cost of Passion Plays Adeje
