Patrica Gets Ready (For A Date With The Man That Used To Hit Her)

by Martha Watson Allpress , Tour Booker & Creative Producer


Fresh from its 5-star run in London and Edinburgh in 2021, Patricia Gets Ready (for a date with the man that used to hit her) will tour to venues across the UK this May. Midlands born actor Yasmin Dawes (May Queen, Paines Plough; Education, Education, Karaoke) will now bring to life this striking show which aims to shatter the weathered stereotype of the 'broken woman’ and instead presents a survivor in all her colours. Written by Martha Watson Allpress, this production shines a delicate light on the realities of domestic abuse and those who experience it.


Patricia Gets Ready toured to Colchester, Havant, Guildford, Harlow, Brixton, Lancaster, Harrogate, Manchester & Derby
