Patrick Sandford in Groomed

Moving play by former Nuffield director
‘The adult tries so hard to forget, but the child always remembers,’ says the protagonist in Groomed by Patrick Sandford.  I am sure you will be as sad and angry as I was by the end of this 50-minute monologue about the abuse suffered by a 10-year-old child and the reverberating effect on the rest of his life. Its exceptional impact is a tribute to writing and acting of the former Artistic Director of the Nuffield Southampton.
