The Kitchen Sink by Tom Wells.
Holden2UrHats Theatre Company’s latest production.
A family. A year. A sink.
The Kitchen Sink is an irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes.
Things aren't going to plan for one family in Withernsea. 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 Jiu-Jitsu teacher might be disappearing down the plug hole. And amid the dreaming, dramas and dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?
The Kitchen Sink cuts surprisingly deep, blessed with both tenderness and a beautiful sense of tentative hope.
Winner of the George Devine Award 2012, The Kitchen Sink was also the first recipient of the new Simon Gray Award, set up to enable the London production of a young writer's work, in memory of the late playwright and diarist.
