Theatre Bites offers five irresistible and bite-sized British plays presented in collaboration with Lindsey McAlister, founder of Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF), and Tony Awards-winning producer Brian Zeilinger.

Tuck into everything from highly entertaining tales of spies and gangsters, to the most hotly debated global and social issues of our time: environmental, gender and diversity. Presented alongside the thought-provoking live performances, Theatre Bites will give you the chance to see what happens behind the scenes through open rehearsals and talks for selected shows.

ArtisTree Selects aims to open the world of art to new audiences by presenting work commissioned and curated by ArtisTree with its partners in exciting and approachable new ways - featuring touring exhibitions, dance performances, intimate concerts, multi-disciplinary shows, and more.

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)
