The Quay in Sudbury, Suffolk, to stage As SHE Likes It, starring Krupa Pattani, tackling the legacy of sexism and exploitation in Hollywood

A play exposing the cultural legacy of sexism and exploitation in Hollywood is coming to The Quay theatre, in Sudbury, on Tuesday.

As SHE Likes It is the debut show of Chloe Wade Productions and stars Hollyoaks alumni Krupa Pattani, who you may have also seen in Mr Bates v The Post Office, Without Sin and Silent Witness, as Damsel in Distress.

In 1937, 20-year-old Patricia Douglas was brutally attacked and sexually assaulted at an MGM party. Taking on Hollywood’s most powerful institution, the dancer filed charges which were swiftly dismissed and silenced.

Three generations later, through a fusion of live theatre and filmed footage, As SHE Likes It exposes the cultural legacy of sexism and exploitation that still haunts the industry today.

Join Damsel in Distress as she removes the rose-tinted filter to reveal the truth behind the romanticised facade.

As SHE Likes It is a darkly comedic, queer, contemporary Brechtian-style play that uses live theatre and filmed footage to pose the question: How much has changed between the Hollywood of yesteryear and now?
