About the play

Gente de Teatro presents Querido San Antonio (Dear Saint Anthony), an ingenious play in which one man and three women meet at a church in a suburban neighborhood. Dear Saint Anthony, by Argentine author Patricia Suárez 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. In the words of the author, “Whatever you may call it, no one ever stops believing in magic.”
