Patricia has spent a year crafting a kick ass speech for her ex while recovering from his abuse. But when she unexpectedly bumps into him on the street, she somehow agrees to dinner with him that night leaving her with some big decisions to make; what to wear? What to say? And whether or not to go?

Get ready with Patricia for a hilariously honest but delicate hour as she revisits her past, how it has affected her present, and looks honestly at her future.

The inaugural recipient of the Charlie Hartill Development Fund for Artists of Colour

★★★★★ "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" (London Pub Theatre - 2019)
