“Kath's had enough . . . why is it always someone else who gets the cream?”

The Kitchen Sink

Friday 23 September–Saturday 8 October 2016

a New Vic Theatre production

By Tom Wells
Directed by Zoë Waterman

An irresistibly funny and huge-hearted play about marriage, families, making ends meet – and dodgy plumbing. One of the biggest hits of 2012, it helped Tom Wells win both the Critics Circle and the George Devine Awards for Most Promising Playwright.

In their down-at-heel Yorkshire seaside town, things aren’t going to plan for Martin and the family. Bits keep dropping off his milk float, son Billy’s obsessed with Dolly Parton, whilst daughter Sophie’s dreams of teaching ju-jitsu are fast disappearing down the plughole. And something’s up with Kath’s kitchen sink.

Amid the dreams, the dramas and the dirty dishes, something’s got to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink? And, if they all carry on as they are, maybe Martin’s milk float won’t be the only thing falling apart.

“One of the best new plays I have seen anywhere this year, and I cannot recommend it too highly”
Daily Telegraph
