Two girls; one kind of a lesbian, one kind of a liability, are friends. Kind of.

This is kind of their story, and it’s kind of yours too.

In a town where the Miners’ Welfare is now a supermarket and the buses run once an hour, two young women are dealing with some of the most ancient predicaments known to womenkind. When Jo, to-all-intents-and-purposes-a-lesbian, gets pregnant, she turns to her sexually incontinent best friend Eva. Whilst Jo is facing up to some uncomfortable truths and her impending motherhood, it transpires that Eva has been dealing with something far more unwelcome than the unplanned new arrival.

A story about sexuality and sexual health steeped in the beautiful bluntness of the rural East Midlands, It Kind of Looks Like a Doughnut collides the living with the dead, friendship with grief, and seeks to reawaken our relationship with a dazzling matriarchal heritage that we’ve been encouraged to forget.
