Patricia Gets Ready (for a date with the man who used to hit her) is a striking show which aims to shatter the stereotype of the 'broken woman’ and instead presents a survivor. After spending a year crafting a kick ass speech while recovering from an abusive relationship, Patricia bumps into her ex and accidentally agrees to a date. Join Patricia as she gets ready, tells stories of her past, how it has affected her present and looks honestly at her future. Based on writer Martha Watson Allpress’ own experiences, this production shines a light on the realities of domestic abuse.

"Patricia is played flawlessly by Angelina Chudi...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"

“A Poetic and piercing insight into the mind of an abused woman”
