Anya Samuel: Over-achieving journalist.
Level of Excellence: Perpetual.
Level of Chill: NIL.
When her tech CEO fiancé accuses her of being “too emotional” and tasks her to explain the four times she has cried in public since they started dating, Anya cannot help but bring her A-game.
As she prepares to deliver a slide deck to save her relationship, complete with animated infographics of her menstrual cycle, Anya is forced to confront harsh truths about who she really is and what she actually wants in clearer light.
Will her life remain a relentless exercise of proving herself in all arenas, including grappling with the expectations of her pastor father? What will it take for Anya to truly come to know her worth?
Written with dark wit and searing insight by Amanda Chong, Psychobitch boldly dissects gender power dynamics while exploring the subtle shades of toxic relationships. Directed by Pam Oei, this thought-provoking one-woman show starring Sindhura Kalidas challenges us to examine the concessions we make in our search for love and the secrets we keep in order to live.
Psychobitch was developed under the mentorship of Haresh Sharma as part of The Necessary Stage’s developmental playwriting programme, Playwrights Cove 2022.
