This is an irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes. 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 plughole. Amid the dreaming, the dramas and the dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink? This volume also includes the monologue "Spacewang". This title comes from the talented young author of "Me, As a Penguin" (2006), Tom Wells.
TOM WELLS grew up on a farm in Kilnsea, East Yorkshire and studied English at St Hugh's College, Oxford. He wrote a short site-specific play for Leeds Light Night 07 and has had rehearsed readings at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and the Royal Court. Me, As A Penguin was his first long play and won him the WYP Future Perfect attachment and was produced there as part of the Northern Exposure season. The Kitchen Sink had its world premiere as the first play produced at the new Bush Theatre in 2011.
