The Absence of Peas, written by Peter Shaw, produced by and starring Stephen Alexander.

In the midst of a global pandemic, what better way to distract yourself than listening to a comedy/drama about a worldwide apocalypse? It’s Day of the Triffids meets Abel & Cole, as our hero ‘Oswald’ has to face the ultimate catastrophe: a world without peas. But, don’t worry, it has a happy ending (kind of).
