Sitting Pretty

by Amy Rosenthal
Director: Robert Harsley
8 - 24 September 2016


Two unmarried sisters in their fifties share a London flat: Nina is brisk, dynamic and gainfully employed; Nancy is plump, self-conscious and suddenly redundant.


Urged by Nina and their faithful friend, Max, to find a hobby, Nancy unwittingly stumbles into a group of eccentric life drawing students and their philandering teacher, Philip. Initially horrified, Nancy is unexpectedly liberated by the experience, which she keeps a secret from her sister. But her newfound confidence unsettles Nina's self-possession.


The sisters move towards an inevitable confrontation as Nina faces her unhappy past and Nancy glimpses a possible future. This is a bitter-sweet play that unfolds with beautifully humorous twists and turns.
