This is a contemporary piece set in a run-down northern seaside town which follows the ups and downs of a family during the course of one year. Things aren’t going to plan and each of the well-drawn characters has issues to face and problems to resolve. Amid the dreams and the dramas of family life something has to give!
Martin, the father (a milkman), is struggling to keep his business going. Kath, the mother (a school cook and lollypop lady), is desperately trying to keep everyone positive and happy. Billy, the son (an art student), comes to realize that the course he has joined is not for him. Sophie, the feisty daughter (a would-be judo instructor), has an issue from the past which impacts on her ambitions. Finally, Pete (a plumber) is hopelessly sensitive, shy and has desperate romantic designs for Sophie.
