Gente de Teatro (Houston, TX) is back with Querido San Antonio (Dear St. Anthony), an ingenious comedy by Argentine playwright Patricia Suárez. Gente de Teatro premiered Dear St. Anthony in the US on April 2017 with four presentations that attracted 700 patrons at Rice University.
Dear Saint Anthony is a witty play about the longings of three mid-twentieth century women, all devotees of Saint Anthony, who stray from the straight and narrow in an upside-down world where anything goes.
During the first decades of the twentieth century, the world began to change, and so did women. In Dear Saint Anthony, the miracle-performing saint who can find lost objects and dreamed-of lovers becomes a magical interlocutor for three women. Clever, rebellious and ever hopeful, the women manage to revert the established order as they hope to find the man of their dreams, get back their small possessions and break free from their assigned roles. The end justifies the means in this search for the miracle of love. In “Dear Saint Anthony”, anything goes.
Patricia Suárez brings to life a funny, smart, dynamic comedy revealing the relationship of a group of women with the world around them as well as their chances of revamping it to their advantage.
