Story of Chile plays on the Vineyard

by Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll, Cape Cod Times

The Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse has returned to full productions on its Patricia Neal Stage at 24 Church St., Vineyard Haven with “Burning Patience,” by Antonio Skármeta running at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays through Sept. 17.

The romantic comedy, directed by Olga Sanchez, is set in early 1970s Isla Negra, Chile — peaceful as political unrest threatens — where young Mario learns about life and love while delivering the mail to renowned poet Pablo Neruda. “Burning Patience” is based on Skármeta’s book “El cartero de Neruda,“ which was made into the Academy Award-winning foreign film, “Il Postino” (1994).
