Arts Centre Washington
Thursday 22nd March 2018

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.

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.
