One of Paterson's celebrated shorts from his collection, The Blonde and Other Slight Distractions. Perfect for scene studies, two person auditions, scene nights and showcases, providing a wide variety of characters both humorous and thought provoking. In The Blonde, Eddie kidnaps Gloria from a supermarket car park and takes her to a basement. She thinks that he wants to rape and kill her but he says that he just wants to talk - but when it comes to that, Gloria can talk the hind legs off a donkey.
