Patty Diphusa was the heroine of Pedro Almodovar's feature columns for La Luna Weekly, published in Madrid in the 1980's. The character, an international porn star, was originally intended to be the filmmaker's alter ego. Almodovar fashioned her to be a more obscene but less pathetic impersonation of Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's.
The solo one act play Patty Diphusa has enjoyed great success since its' premiere in 2004 and continues to draw cheers from crowds around Poland.
