Me, As A Penguin

By Tom Wells

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A charmingly offbeat, surreal comedy of knitting, penguins and Battenberg.

Stitch is hitting the gay scene of Hull. Or at least dipping his toe in the water, while staying with his heavily pregnant sister Liz and her shabby sofa-loving partner Mark. But why won't Stitch let anyone into the bathroom even though Liz is dying for a pee? And who is the man in the giant penguin costume?

Tom Wells' play Me, As A Penguin premiered at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds in 2009 as part of their new-writing season, Northern Exposure. It subsequently went on a regional tour including a run at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2010.

This volume also features two monologues by Tom Wells, About a Goth and Notes for First Time Astronauts.
