BAFTA-Award winning Katherine Parkinson’s debut play ‘Sitting’ has been adapted for the screen. The hour-long comedy-drama forms part of BBC Lights Up, BBC Arts’ Culture In Quarantine season celebrating British Theatre.
Starring Katherine for the first time, the one-off special follows three characters as they sit for a silent painter. In these sittings, Luke, Cassandra and Mary reveal truths in a play about love, loss and the importance of human connection.
Katherine made her debut as a playwright with ‘Sitting’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of a BBC Arts and Avalon playwright’s initiative, with the play subsequently transferring to London’s Arcola Theatre.
‘Sitting’ airs at 10.30pm on Wednesday 7th April on BBC4.
