Patricia Gets Ready
(for a date with the man that used to hit her)
Patricia has spent a year recovering from an abusive relationship. But when she bumps into her ex on the street, she accidentally agrees to go to dinner with him that night.
Now she's got some big decisions to make. What to wear? What to say? And... whether or not to go?
"Powerful and emotionally satisfying... Martha Watson Allpress refuses to simplify a complex issue... an unflinching examination of a complex subject that challenges audiences to review their attitudes towards survivors of physical abuse."- British Theatre Guide
"The script is fantastic – it's witty, it's aware, it's deep, and it deals with a hard subject matter in a real and often humorous way without trivialising it."- London Pub Theatre
"Brilliant... A script that refuses to simplify, to be neat and tidy, to apologise, to paint Patricia as just a victim. Rather, she is bold, funny (very funny) and sexually confident."- Guardian
