Me, As A Penguin
By Tom Wells
Michaelmas Week 6
From the team who brought you 'Moments' (*****- TCS, "laugh out loud funny"- The Tab) :
A comedy about knitting, penguins and Battenburg. 'Me, As A Penguin' is an insight into the life of Stitch, his heavily pregnant sister Liz and her sofa-loving partner Mark. Stitch is attempting to sample the gay scene of Hull, Mark is having doubts about 'the bump', whilst Liz is just desperate for the loo.
But who is the man in the giant penguin costume? And why is nobody allowed into the toilet?
From the writer of the smash-hit comedy "The Kitchen Sink", 'Me, As A Penguin' was the centre-piece of Northern Exposure 2009; the West Yorkshire Playhouse's new writing showcase. 'Me, As A Penguin' is witty, heartfelt and deeply engaging.
