Sister Radio

Sisters Fatemeh and Shirin have been living together, in the same flat in Edinburgh, for 43 years. In this flat, they cook, read their coffee grains, listen to the radio and try to remember their childhoods in Tehran but they no longer 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 new play by Sara Shaarawi (Niqabi Ninja) co-commissioned by Stellar Quines Theatre Company and Pearlfisher.
