Stories to Tell in the Middle of the Night


'I'll take you through the night, its highs, its lows those frustrations. Lets populate the long dark hours and the small light hours with stories. People.' 


Dreamlike and darkly humorous, this live, late night radio show is inspired by the legendary radio shows of Ronnie Wood and Iggy Pop and includes tales of everything from love and obsession to technology and disconnection. Not to mention pork pies.

The show played to critical acclaim at Edinburgh 2016, and was followed by a two week run at Birmingham Rep in January 2017, continuing to tour the West Midlands in hospices, schools, and community centre's as part of the prestigious Sir Barry Jackson Tour.  

'A beautiful hour of weird and wonderful story telling'

Its life as a touring show has ended for now, but it is now a podcast, a series of BSL videos and a bookwork. Listen to all available episodes below and subscribe to the podcast.
