News: Katherine Parkinson's Debut Play Comes to London

Following a run at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, IT Crowd star Katherine Parkinson’s debut play Sitting will have its London première at the Arcola Theatre.

Luke, Cassandra and Mary are sitting. They sit weekly for their portraits and, in a series of revealing sessions, end up sharing their funny and moving tales of love, longing and loss.

Sarah Bedi (co-artistic director of BAZ Productions) directs Sitting which opens on 15th April 2019, with previews from 10th April and runs until 11th May.

Katherine Parkinson is an Olivier Award nominee for her role in Home, I’m Darling (National Theatre) and a BAFTA Award-winning actor, whose credits include The IT Crowd (Channel 4), Doc Martin (ITV), The Honourable Woman (BBC Two) and Humans (Channel 4). Parkinson has turned her talents to playwriting here for the first time in her extensive career.

Sitting was originally directed by Sarah Bedi and produced by BBC Arts and Avalon at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of an initiative to encourage writers from genres outside of theatre to write for the stage. Arcola Theatre presents Sitting in association with BBC Arts and Avalon.
