Take two single sisters, fifty-something: one unemployed, over-weight, depressed and not just a little dragged down; the other one slender, active, good job, self-confident, optimistic and attractive.
The near future will be full of surprises for the sisters and those they encounter. The audience will also witness these ups and downs as the adventures unfold. (Warning: Make that an adult audience as this dramatic comedy contains coarse language and partial nudity.)
Who knew that “life-model” art classes meant posing nude!?! Will the long-suffering, weight- challenged sister, who has just lost her job, go through with it and take up the challenge of exposure as a model? The ensuing twists and turns make this comedy full of surprises not to be missed.

Director, Mary Lloyd, reveals that the Sitting Pretty actors portray real people dealing with the real challenges life brings at all ages but particularly in middle age. The play also includes hope, finding ways to live life to the fullest and the courage to take chances.
Mary Lloyd will be remembered from her much loved ECT production Steel Magnolias, another play filled with interesting and lovable characters. The audience left the theatre feeling like they knew them. In Sitting Pretty, Mary says: “These are characters with whom the audience can identify. No matter what your age, there is always a new adventure waiting. And the characters speak to adult audiences of all ages. Love and acceptance are indeed found in the strangest places.”
Sitting Pretty is ECT’s third and last play of their 40th season. As we enter our 5th decade of continuous entertainment, stay tuned for the announcement of next season which will include two popular family shows and a love story for Valentine’s Day. Something for everyone!
