As part of the Classic Theatre Classic Presents series, Teatro Farolito is bringing the premiere of Burning Patience to San Antonio. This love story was adapted to the screen in the 1994 film Il Postino: The Postman.

The sounds of bells, of sea waves, of gulls, of rustling leaves, weave in and out of the poetry and are part of the larger poem that is this play. Life, of course, was never this lovely, not for Neruda, Allende, or the people of Chile. Neruda, after all, not only lived through World War II, but also lost his friend and fellow poet, Federico García Lorca, during the Spanish Civil War. In Chile there is a dance in which wives, daughters, and mothers of thousands of “missing,” dance with photographs of loved ones pinned to their clothing. Skármeta’s Burning Patience is such a dance. In the absence of marked graves, art is the closest thing to a memorial that the missing in Chile may ever have.
