New Vic Theatre presents The Kitchen Sink

A New Vic Theatre production:

 The Kitchen Sink

By Tom Wells

Directed by Zoë Waterman

Friday 23 September to Saturday 8 October

The New Vic Theatre’s Autumn Season is set to kick off with Tom Wells’ heart-warmingly comic The Kitchen Sink.

Directed by Zoë Waterman, the production runs at the theatre-in-the-round from Friday 23 September to Saturday 8 October.

The irresistibly funny and huge-hearted play about marriage, families, making ends meet and dodgy plumbing was one of the biggest hits of 2012 and helped 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, while 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.

The cast features Jason Furnival (War Horse, UK tour and National Theatre); Emma Gregory (Furness Festival, West Yorkshire Playhouse); Dan Parr (The Musketeers, BBC; Kes, West Yorkshire Playhouse); Alice Proctor (The Oddity, Out of Nowhere Theatre); and Steven Roberts (The History Boys, UK tour; Hollyoaks, Channel 4).

Tickets for The Kitchen Sink, priced from £13.50 to £23.00 (concessions available), are available by telephoning the New Vic Box Office on 01782 717962 or online
