The Kitchen Sink

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? In the course of the play, which follows its characters through a year, it looks as though the family is going to crumble into despondency and chaos.
