I can't believe any female actor with an ounce of self-respect would choose that monologue, with its pre-1969 levels of female passivity and self-abasement. I'd have a hard time casting someone who picked it - I'd just automatically assume she's an idiot.

The monologue is not only obnoxious in itself, it is obnoxious because it encapsulates the mind-blowing irritation level of Sight Unseen , a play about the playwright's desire to be worshipped, especially by females, for his artistic importance and power. Donald Margulies admits in the latest issue of the Dramatists Guild magazine that Sight Unseen is a thinly disguised self-portrait. I'd lock that shit away, Dorian Gray.

The Patricia character doesn't merely worship Jonathan and his art though. By rejecting her, Jonathan has ruined her life. Thanks to Jonathan, Patricia had to marry an English guy she doesn't really desire. The only time they have hot sex is when Jonathan comes to visit, because his proximity turns Patricia into an animal.

Tangent Theatre’s production of ‘Sight Unseen’ is well-wrought drama   -- Jim Donick Northern Dutchess News (5/15/13)

One of the great joys for a theatre lover must be the pleasure of watching good actors disappearing into meaty character roles. “Sight Unseen” fits that bill nicely. It’s an actors’ play.

Donald Margulies gives us a story with a set of characters whose sole purpose is to help us understand who they are and what makes them tick. It sounds rather simple, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not simple. It’s magic.
