The Sitting Room

Staged Reading

Written by Rebecca Redshaw and performed by Elizabeth Kelly and Rebecca Redshaw, this story is about Jean and her dog, Leo, receiving an unexpected and perplexing gift of a painting. Her sitting room walls are already filled with old treasures; Hopper’s Nighthawks, Degas’ L’Absinthe, and an old English favorite of her mother’s. When Jean closes the door to go out for the afternoon, the framed “characters” come to life, jockeying for position and interrogating the new interloper – a signed, original oil. Each states his or her claim to wall space as the mystery of the surprise guest slowly unfurls.
