Writer and theatre maker John Osborne returns to the stage with a double bill of two evocative, funny and heart-warming storytelling shows. Cult Edinburgh sell out show John Peel’s Shed is about a box of records that once belonged to Radio 1 DJ John Peel. This is the story of what John did next with those records. The show was a complete sell out at the 2011 Edinburgh fringe, receiving five-star reviews and was adapted for BBC Radio 4. After touring the country it’s back for a few shows, performed alongside John’s new show Circled in the Radio Times, about his grandfather’s collection of old magazines and the changing ways all of us watch television.

Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute regular Gyles delivers a dazzling hour of wit, wisdom, high drama, low comedy, and hilarious name-dropping.
