The kitchen sink
It’s been a while since Martin’s milk round has earned money. His truck – and a lot of his customers, for that matter – have seen better days. His practical, dinner-lady wife Kath wants him to give up the business, but Martin can’t quite bring himself to move on – to what? Meanwhile, their son Billy dreams of being an artist, daughter Sophie’s aspirations for a career in martial arts have hit a rather violent snag, while would-be boyfriend Pete waits in the wings – hopeless at love, but a great plumber. THE KITCHEN SINK is a touching and irresistible comedy from one of the UK’s finest young writers, a richly woven story about finding the courage to face change, and the enduring strength of family bonds.
“WARM, FRESH, COMIC AND QUIRKY. THE KITCHEN SINK… CUTS SURPRISINGLY DEEP, BLESSED WITH BOTH TENDERNESS AND A BEAUTIFUL SENSE OF TENTATIVE HOPE… BOTH HILARIOUS AND DEEPLY TOUCHING, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST NEW PLAYS I HAVE SEEN ANYWHERE THIS YEAR, AND I CANNOT RECOMMEND IT TOO HIGHLY.”
