Stories to Tell When You Stay at Home Specially developed during April 2020, when large part so the globe were on lockdown.

It is strange times, we all know that, oddly familiar yet completely unknown. These are stories for adults, while they tidy up, do the washing up, sit very still, try to get some sleep….They are recorded in lockdown, created in a homemade recording studio made from duvets and light fittings.

Stories to Tell in the Middle of the Night A series of 9 episodes of short, strange tales. Small stories, odd, true, funny and familiar that reflect the night hours themselves.

Each episode has a set of Stories that visit a different kind or part of the night. They are Stories that aren't always about the night but carry a sense of the night, of being awake when no one else is, unrest, when the sleep won't come. The things that keep us awake. Frustrations, irritations, fears, loss, love and lust. Each set of Stories is no longer than 30 minutes and has a theme that ties those stories together.

There is a night out on the town, nights in with lovers, or nights up remembering the left behind. Sometimes you’ll get three stories, sometimes five, sometimes a mini story and a singular long tale. I’ll tell you stories about dead dogs, pork pies, noisy neighbours and itches that need to be scratched.
