About the play

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.”

Gente de Teatro patrons coming to HAMMAN HALL may park in the North Visitors Lot (Entrance 20 or 21) or the North Annex Lot (Entrance 20), using a credit card. Parking in these lots will be charged at a discounted rate of $7.

Visitors paying with cash only should park at the Central Campus Garage, at the regular rate.
At no time can anyone park on Campanile Road, nor in the Mudd cul-de-sac, for longer than 15 minutes.

Entrance 21 is the closest access to Hamman Hall. When you park at North Visitors Lot, you face the back of Hamman Hall building on Campanile Rd. Look for Gente de Teatro’s signs and walk to the front entrance of the building. Parking is also available in Greenbriar Lot, west of the stadium, with entry at entrances 13A off of Greenbriar Dr., and 16 off on Rice Blvd. If you park at Greenbriar lot you can walk towards Hamman Hall. It is an approximately 15-minute walk.

North Lot & North Annex Lot (BY CREDIT CARD ONLY).

Machines at the entrance gates will instruct the driver to insert a credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Discover). When exiting after the event, the gates will be open with the arms up. The credit card will be charged $7 – a discounted rate.

Central Campus Garage (BY CASH or CREDIT CARD): $1 per 19 minutes, $12 daily maximum – not a discounted rate.

At the garage entrance, the driver pulls an entry ticket from the machine or uses his credit card to open the gate. If the visitor pulled a ticket, he or she will carry the entry ticket with them when they exit the car. When ready to leave, the visitor stops at the "pay-on-foot" machine near the elevators. As instructed by the machine, the visitor inserts the ticket into the machine and is shown the amount owed. The visitor may then pay with cash (coins or paper currency) or credit card (if paying with credit card, it can be done directly at the exit gate). The machine issues an exit ticket. The visitor then drives to the exit gate, inserts the exit ticket, and the gate opens. To print a receipt, the visitor can push the button next to the word "Receipt" on the pay-on-foot machines.
