With humour and heart "Hot Potato" is a thought-provoking one-woman show, acted by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School graduate and former child actor Rosie Taylor-Ritson. In the play, Rosie's character switches between her 15-year-old self and her 26-year-old self, as she navigates the world of online dating after a court case involving her and her teacher's abusive relationship. With humour and heart, "Hot Potato" explores the complexities of love and relationships in the modern age and how our past experiences shape our present.
The term "hot potato" refers to a topic or issue that is controversial or difficult to handle. In this play, Billy grapples with the hot potato of her past trauma and abuse as she tries to move on and navigate the world of dating, moving on from the label “Oh that poor girl who was in a relationship with her teacher at 15, what a tragic story”. With raw emotion and unflinching honesty, "Hot Potato" challenges our understanding of love, desire, and the lasting impact of our past experiences.
