Turn off that TV and catch a new show looks at how
we watch television and how a collection of old Radio Times’ tells the story of
the changing nature of TV.
Circled in the Radio Times, the brand new storytelling show by the
creator of John Peel’s Shed and Sky 1’s After Hours, comes to Arts Centre Washington
on Thursday 22 March.
After debuting his first theatre show John Peel’s Shed at Edinburgh in
2011, John Osborne returns with Circled in the Radio Times. A beautiful story about how
finding a collection of old copies of the Radio Times leads to him piecing
together the life of the previous owner, this show looks at the changing nature
of the way all of us watch television.
Writer and poet John Osborn writes for TV, theatre
and Radio 4, he is also the
creator of After Hours, a sitcom on Sky 1 starring Jaime Winstone, Ardal
O’Hanlon and Georgina Campbell. It was directed and produced by The Royle
Family’s Craig Cash. It’s about Lauren (Winstone), a cool girl whose lives on a
boat, where she presents an internet radio show with her friend Ollie.
John created the one man show John Peel’s Shed, a complete sell out at
the 2011 Edinburgh fringe, receiving five star reviews from The Independent and
The Scotsman. The show was adapted for BBC Radio 4 and performed across the
country, including Glastonbury festival and the Soho Theatre.
He has created six half hour storytelling shows for Radio 4, including
The New Blur Album, Valentine’s Day and Don’t Need the Sunshine, described by
comedian Stewart Lee in The Observer as leaving him and his children ‘spellbound
and in tears’.
John has performed poetry at festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude
and Bestival and is currently working on new projects for television and radio.
