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?
An irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes, written by Bush Associate Playwright Tom Wells.
