Her foray into museum theatre lead to writing commissioned works for the Franklin Institute and then Historic Philadelphia, Inc. where she also worked as an actor performing in her own plays.

In Philadelphia Patricia was a member of the Brick Playhouse play development center.  Brick productions include Teasing, Tarzan and Jane Share Their Erotic Jungle Fantasies, and Last Wishes, which won the Brick's audience favorite award. Teasing received a second production at the CityTheatre Company's 10 Minute Play Festival in Delaware.  Tarzan and Jane had it's west coast premiere in 2011 at the Three Rose Players Writers Speaks in North Hollywood.
