Tom Wells

Most Promising Playwright, Critics' Circle Awards - 2011

 

George Devine Award - 2012

“Writing to remember.” -- Guardian

“This is one of the best new plays I have seen anywhere this year, and I cannot recommend it too highly.” -- Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

“Wells wrings more riches out of seemingly throwaway lines than a lot of writers manage in an entire play.” -- Evening Standard

An irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes.

Amid the dreaming, the dramas and the dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?

Things aren't going to plan for one family in Withernsea, Yorkshire. 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 ju-jitsu teacher might be disappearing down the plughole.

This volume also includes the monologue Spacewang, in which a teenage girl roams the streets of Withernsea in search of aliens.

Tom Wells is a playwright whose work has been staged by the West Yorkshire Playhouse, the Arcola, Paines Plough, The Bush Theatre and Hull Truck, amongst others.
