Sisters Fatemeh and Shirin have been living together, in the same flat in Edinburgh, for 43 years. In this flat they cook, they read their coffee grains, they think about the fading memories of their childhood in Tehran and they listen to the radio. Although they live side by side, they never talk to one another. When a global pandemic hits and the sisters are locked in their flat, they are forced to reckon with their memories of a betrayal that changed the course of their relationship.
Sister Radio is a vibrant yet nostalgic play reflecting on both migration and family as well as being a celebration of culture from two very different places.
Ticket prices from £16. Concessions available – call Box Office for more information.
*Advisory warning – we recommend this play for those aged 10 and over due to strong language.
We would like to thank Sholeh Persian restaurant in Glasgow for supplying us with a traditional Persian Samovar for use in the production. To find out more about the restaurant CLICK HERE
Sister Radio is a co-production between Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Stellar Quines.
“I’m incredibly excited to have this piece programmed at Pitlochry Festival Theatre and to be working with Stellar Quines. I have a lot of admiration and respect for both companies, and I cannot wait to see them bring this play to life.”
