The theatre festival Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) has programmed Carta de una desconocida, (Letter from a stranger) by the Colombian theatre company Señor M, also known as 4 Paredes for the stage space where they perform in their country.
It is based on an unrequited love story: a man receives a letter from a woman. She tells him how she has loved him since she was a child. She used to watch him through her window and continued to love him throughout her life. It is the story of silent love that she has so far not dared to reveal. Despite the signs, he has failed to discover it. It is a story of loneliness, pain, and hope with small happy moments. The play talks about women's privacy, time, hope, and love... It deals with how we construct and idealize ‘the other’ and relationships; it talks about those deep and silent loves that become idyllic and perfect. They live only in the lover's mind and are not deteriorated by use and habit. It deals with sublime loves that last a lifetime. But the story also talks about silence, and how we let ourselves be carried away by a desire for the here and now.
