The third series of Tony Pitts' radio comedy show, 'big, funny, daft poem to the sea' SHEDTOWN starts tomorrow, Tuesday 1st April at 11pm on BBC Radio 4.
Commissioned by Johnny Vegas' Woolyback Productions, the show is narrated by Maxine Peake and stars Stephen Mangan, Warren Brown and James Quinn.
Who hasn't thought about running away from it all at some time or other? Barry and Jimmy hadn't - until now. Friends since school days in a small town, they find themselves slipping inexorably and almost unconsciously into middle age.
Shedtown is a dream born out of quiet desperation. Throughout the series the wooden icon of escape and isolation 'the shed' becomes a symbol of possibility and change, a new community by the sea where Barry and Jimmy can circumnavigate the mundane, once and for all.
Reviews for series 2: “If you think of radio in colour this comedy comes in shades of sepia and charcoal with the occasional bright patch of green. It’s also pretty addictive, a floaty tale of people looking for new starts, picking themselves up from failed ones, seeking change and consolation.” – Radio Highlights, The Telegraph.
Reviews for series 1 “Dreamy and hilarious” – The Observer. “It’s a bit like Under Milk Wood with touches of Father Ted” – The Telegraph.
