Circled in the Radio Times is a storytelling show from 2017 about TV, family and magazines. From the creator of Radio 4’s John Peel’s Shed. Performed at Latitude Festival, Brighton fringe, Machynlleth festival and the Edinburgh festival.
‘Melts the boundaries between spoken word poetry, storytelling theatre and stand up with its sheer warmth, sensitivity and openness.’ ***** – Broadway Baby.
It’ll hopefully be a show that tours again in the future, but for now it’s just exists here as a Bandcamp thing. If you want to listen please do so for free. If you want to donate anything that’s also massively helpful and gratefully received.
