Stitch is hitting the gay scene of Hull. Or at least dipping his toe in the water while staying with 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?

A comedy of knitting, penguins and Battenberg cake from the company that brought you Company Along The Mile.

‘Wells exercises impressive command over a surreal situation… given the choice I personally would pick up the penguin.’ The Guardian
