One of 3 portraits commissioned for the BBC Arts & Avalon Production of Katherine Parkinson's debut play 'Sitting', part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018

'Do you even need me here? I think you do. Actually.' 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. Sitting is the debut play by BAFTA Award-winning actress Katherine Parkinson. Her many credits include The IT Crowd, Doc Martin, The Honourable Woman and Humans."
