John Osborne has written and performed six half hour storytelling shows for Radio 4. They are funny, heart-warming and a masterclass in how to keep an audience captivated. This autumn he is travelling around with a stage show where he tells three of these stories as well as performing new material he is developing for Radio 4. The shows were all broadcast 4 between 2011 and 2015 and include:
John Peel’s Shed. Valentine’s Day. The Newsagent’s Window. The New Blur Album. The Kindness of Strangers. Don’t Need the Sunshine.
