Publisher's Summary

Morwenna Banks and Rebecca Front star in a brand-new comedy set in a library.

Meet Alice, a former child prodigy who's scared of everything - except libraries and her colleague, Snoo, a slightly confused individual with a have-a-go attitude towards life, marriage, haircuts, and reality. Forever popping into the library is Dr. Cadogan, celebrity doctor to the stars and a man with his finger in every pie. Their happy life is interrupted by the arrival of Simon Nielson, a man with a mission to close down inefficient libraries....

Also featuring Michael Fenton-Stevens and Ben Willbond, Shush! is produced by Pozzitive, whose other hit series include Cabin Pressure, Thanks a Lot, Milton Jones!, Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, The Brig Society, The Castle, Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive and Kevin Eldon Will See You Now....

Not All BBC TItles Hit Home Runs

Its an interesting premise. Its relatively well executed. But I think that they really only had a "one joke" skit in mind and had a little trouble spinning it off into a series. It has your usual high quality performances and great sound. The story is just a little bit weak.

Inspired silliness

Rebecca Front is in so many of my favourite radio shows so I was delighted to hear a series penned by her as well. And who isn't charmed by Morwenna Banks? These two fantastic performers dance effortlessly through this sinfully funny sitcom.

Very disappointing

With the names involved you'd think it would be great but it's truly beyond awful. Archaic puns, lazy charcters and weak plots. Two thumbs down.

An excellent jolly comedy

I was a bit dubious about this series but I must say the writing and performing really are excellent.

Quite short but entertaining

Quite short but entertaining. Some humour was about contrived, but it was enjoyable and I'll be ordering series 2.

Silly and hilarious- perfect radio comedy

A silly scenario, brilliant and fast-paced word play, charmingly innocent - anyone who's ever liked Front or Banks (or Armando Ianucci, who helped on the script) will love this.
