Red Stitch Actors Theatre presents the Australian Premiere of Tom Wells’ hit new play The Kitchen Sink directed by David Bell, a touching comedy about family life and pipe dreams.

For one family in the faded Yorkshire seaside resort of Withernsea, not all is going to plan. Pieces are falling off Martin’s milk float as quickly as he is losing customers. Son Billy is pinning his hopes of a place at Art College on a portrait of Dolly Parton, while his sister Sophie’s dreams of becoming a JiuJitsu teacher might just be disappearing down the plughole. Holding the family together is mum Kath, a dinner lady with the patience of a saint – except something’s up with her sink. As it follows its characters throughout a year,

The Kitchen Sink explores people’s capacity to change in small and unforeseen ways.

The Kitchen Sink features ensemble members Tim Potter as Billy and Paul Ashcroft as Pete who star alongside guest actors Russell Fletcher as Martin, Christine Keogh as Kath and Kristina Brew as Sophie.

Playwright Tom Wells, says ‘I grew up in Yorkshire and the play is probably only one step away from autobiography…It’s a gentle comedy because that is the environment that I was brought up in.”

A comical and affecting 90 minutes, The Kitchen Sink, has proved to be a hit at Red Stitch Actors Theatre enjoying a sell-out season in September 2012.

Presented by: FAC and Red Stitch
