John Shuttleworth is the character created by musician Graham Fellows, who has also on occasion been known as Jilted John, best remembered for his massive hit in the seventies, Jilted John. John Shuttleworth is a completely different kettle of fish. John is a fifty-something unemployed man living in Sheffield, who is fond of DIY and writing songs on his Yamaha keyboard, which are inspired by his life.


“The A1111 – And Other Ones” is John’s third greatest hits compilation, released to co-incide with his “Last Will And Tasty Mint” tour in 2017 featuring more super songs with honed lyrics!

Motherland is a show all about navigating the trials and traumas of middle-class motherhood, looking at the competitive and unromantic sides of parenting - not the cute and acceptable public face of motherhood.


We meet the 'Alpha Mums' headed by Amanda, who is very much the Queen Bee: everything is organised, clean and sparkly - even the kitchen cork board is a statement of success. Yet at the other end of the spectrum, we meet Liz, who's totally chaotic and feels the kids should enjoy free expression.


Somewhere in the middle is Julia, who, when she forgets it's the school holidays, realises her organisational skills are nowhere near the level of the 'Alpha Mums'. Also in the mix is Kevin. He's the stay at home dad, who, rather than fighting against that, is embracing it with gusto - much to the irritation of the other mothers. -

When I was a lad at school around 13 years old, our Maths teacher used to call me Wol. At the end of the year as we were moving up a class I plucked up courage to ask why he called me Wol. He told meit was thename of the deslexic owl in Winnie the Pooh. With my Harry Potter glasses he said I looked like the Wise Old Owl in the Winnie the Pooh stories.


Being the vain person I am I took it as a compliment
