The Fitzrovia Radio Hour

Recreating the unique spirit of 1940’s radio plays and brilliantly evoking a dinner-jacketed age of casual imperialism and stiff upper lips. The Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s brand new show tours fresh from three critically acclaimed London residencies, and two sell-out years at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Performed with cut-glass theatricality blending homage and satire, Fitzrovia mixes the chauvinist attitudes of 1940s Britain with sharp contemporary humour to produce a heady comic cocktail. Throughout the plays, sound effects are created live: a Bakelite hairdryer imitates a heating torch, a desk fan becomes an aeroplane, and multiple types of cabbage help to stage a fight scene. Rippingly good fun!

‘Absolutely spiffing show that recreates the innocent, clipped, Bulldog Drummond spirit of Forties live radio drama, with a skilled company stepping up their retro mics to unfold ripping yarns. A Joy.’  **** Daily Telegraph

‘Dramatic entertainment redolent of a bygone era. Jolly good show, chaps!’ The Guardian

‘Both evokes and satirises a long-gone era. Smart gags and smart clothes too.’ Evening Standard – Critic’s Choice
