JOHN PEEL’S SHED by John Osborne

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio One show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This five-star, sell-out smash theatre hit of the Edinburgh Festival, broadcast on BBC Radio Four in December 2011, is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in wireless. Inspired by Osborne’s acclaimed book Radio Head (Radio 4’s Book Of The Week) and featuring records previously owned by Peel. Script edited by Joe Dunthorne (Submarine).

“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 is a very good place to sit. I could have listened for hours” – * * * * *
The Independent

“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

“One of the Top Ten Theatre Highlights of the Edinburgh Festival…
Funny, perceptive and charming” – * * * * The Telegraph

“One of the loveliest things you’ll see all year” – * * * * The Herald

“Genius… A comic highlight” – The Guardian
