In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless. This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans.
John Peel’s Shed by John Osborne is written and performed by John Osborne. Produced and co-devised by Show And Tell.
PRESS + REVIEWS
“Shy and awkward but with a keen eye for a killer line and the significance of the trivia of daily life, Osborne sits somewhere between Tom Wrigglesworth and Daniel Kitson, which a very good place to sit. I could have listened for hours” ***** - The Independent
“A complete pleasure. All radio nerds need to see it but non nerds will also love it.” - Greg James, Radio 1
“Beautifully-written, funny and poignant… Just as John Peel’s records changed his life this lovely, simple, beautifully executed show has enriched ours” ***** - The Scotsman
“The book is ace, the one man show is special” – Huw Stephens, Radio 1
