Things aren’t going to plan for one family in Withernsea, Yorkshire. Pieces are falling off Martin’s milk float as quickly as he’s losing customers and something’s up with Kath’s kitchen sink. Billy is pinning his hopes of a place at art college on a revealing portrait of Dolly Parton, whilst Sophie’s dreams of becoming a ju-jitsu teacher might be disappearing down the plug hole.
Amid the dreaming, the dramas and the dirty dishes something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?
Tom Well’s irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes premiered at Bush Theatre UK in 2011. “One of the best new plays I have seen this year…” The Telegraph
“Outstanding…” Evening Standard
This earthy, heart-warming and laugh out loud production will be playing at Harbour Theatre from 23rd May to 2nd June 2019 (10 performances).
