Tower Theatre present The Kitchen Sink by Tom Wells
Tower Theatre Amateur Dramatic Company presents The Kitchen Sink by Tom Wells at the Theatro Technis, north London, from 23 - 27 September 2014.
The play originally opened at the Bush Theatre in 2011. It was described as "one of the best new plays I have seen anywhere this year" by Charles Spencer of The Daily Telegraph. This production will be directed by Robert Irvine.
The Kitchen Sink is set in the faded Yorkshire seaside resort of Withernsea, described by the resilient mother of the family as 'a very good place to come from'. Things aren't going to plan for this particular family - pieces are falling off Martin's ailing milk float, Kath's cooking is becoming stranger and stranger, 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. Amid the dreaming, dramas and dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?
The Tower Theatre Company are the only full-time, non-professional company in central London and stages up to 18 productions a year. They were founded in 1932 and have over 700 members who "get involved for the sheer love of it".
