1940s-inspired radio adventures, brilliantly evoking a
dinner-jacketed age of casual imperialism - with sound effects
created live by the cast!
"Absolutely spiffing. A joy" **** Daily Telegraph
Following three sell-out Edinburgh runs, a national tour and two West End Seasons, THE FITZROVIA RADIO HOUR arrive at The Crazy Coqs to perform some of their favourite radio tales, including "The Day They Stole They Eiffel Tower" and "The Champion" - all sponsored by "Soho Cigarettes". Smoke the smoke the experts smoke! Smoke "Soho"!
Celebrating an age when radio was brand new and radio drama was stuffed with more stereotypes and cut glass accents than afternoon tea at Lords, the Fitzrovia Radio Hour use new material to recreate the spirit of vintage radio plays for a modern audience.
"A triumph of visual comedy" **** Time Out
The Fitzrovians revel in the glamour of a bygone era, from costume and performance to props. They transport audiences to their unique universe - a wonderful imagining of how commercial 1940s radio should have been done. The Fitzrovia Radio Hour lovingly satirise the casual imperialism and stiff upper lips of the period, throwing them into relief with physical comedy and a modern twist to produce a heady comic cocktail.
"Ripping yarns and jolly japes" **** The Independent
