Maxine Peake as narrator on BBC Radio 4 ‘Shedtown’ series 2 – Jan 10, 2013

Happy New Year everyone! 🙂

The first episode of ‘Shedtown’ (series 2) will be broadcasted on BBC Radio 4 next Thursday at 11pm!

Who hasn’t thought about running away from it all at some time or other? Throwing caution to the wind, wrenching oneself out of a long established orbit to head for the deep space of the unknown?

In series two of Shedtown, our wooden icon of escape and isolation – the shed – continues to be a symbol of possibility and change. Our Sheddists arrived and survived – and, now waking from a beach-baked slumber, the familiar residents find faces old and new on the sand.

Episode 1:
Deborah Dearden arrives back at the beach. Not such a stranger – yet stranger still.
