ArtisTree Selects: Theatre Bites – Sitting

Event Details



Sitting is written by the Olivier nominee and BAFTA Award-winning, star of Channel 4’s The IT Crowd, Katherine Parkinson.

Mary, Luke and Cassandra are three very different people, living three very different lives. But when they meet John, a portrait painter, their fortunes are changed forever.

The play is presented as a series of monologues by three characters, who never interact while being painted by an unseen painter. 

ArtisTree is proud to present the first international production of this play, after its successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Arcola Theatre, one of London’s leading off-West End Theatre.

“Art models reveal all in Katherine Parkinson's smart debut…[she] delicately reveals connections that, by the end, give the play a wistful emotional weight”—The Guardian (Mark Fisher)

Duration: approximately 60 minutes without intermission
Language: Performed in English (for ages eight and above)
