YASMIN Dawes will star in the award-winning show Patricia Gets Ready (for a date with the man that used to hit her) at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford tonight (Thursday).

She will 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.
