The Fitzrovia Radio Hour at Trafalgar Studios
The Fitzrovia Radio Hour, at the Trafalgar Studios 2 theatre from 11 Jan to 5 Feb 2011, at 9pm.
Featuring three radio plays performed live. He Should Have Known His Place, Captain Fasthand and the Rooty Gong and The Undead Queen of Evil! The troupe pay homage to the 1940s and to the golden age of radio.
Witness vegetables simulating fist-fights, crushed cornflakes becoming an ancient priest crumbling to dust, and a desk fan representing a man gutting himself on a lathe. All the sound effects are created live on stage.
The Fitzrovia Radio Hour lovingly satirise the dated attitudes of 1940s Britain, throwing them into relief with physical comedy and a modern twist to produce a heady comic cocktail.
Written, directed and performed by Alix Dunmore, Jon Edgley Bond, Tom Mallaburn, Phil Mulryne, Martin Pengelly, Alex Ratcliffe.
(Also playing at the Trafalgar Studios on the same dates (early evening 7.15pm) is: Barbershopera: Apocalypse No!)
