You’re in a Bad Way
What happens when you find out your dad has dementia? Writer, Radio 4 regular and creator of cult theatre show John Peel’s Shed John Osborne returns to Barton-on-Humber with a brand new storytelling show. You’re in a Bad Way is a funny, sad theatre show about family and the role music plays in our lives. Just because something is diagnosed doesn’t mean it’s the end.
John Osborne grew up in Brigg and writes for television, theatre and radio. In 2015 After Hours, the comedy series he created and co-wrote with Molly Naylor was broadcast on Sky 1, starring Jaime Winstone, Ardal O’Hanlon, BAFTA winner Georgina Campbell. His first theatre show John Peel’s Shed enjoyed a complete sell out run at the Edinburgh fringe and was adapted for BBC Radio 4. He is a regular at festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival and Latitude, and his poetry has been performed in BBC 6Music, Radio 1, XFM and Radio 4.
“Magical and moving” – Clash Magazine.
