"Lady in Red accomplishes the nearly impossible. It powerfully conveys the lived experience of coercive control, including its most devastating effects on one woman's dignity and autonomy, while embracing her capacity for hope and resistance.
Alternately outrageous, thrilling, moving, educational and a springboard for action, this is political educational theater at its very best."
