THE FITZROVIA RADIO HOUR Set for St. James Theatre, 10-11 April
Seabright Productions and Fitzrovia Productions present THE FITZROVIA RADIO HOUR, featuring three radio plays performed live: The Man Who Was Ten Minutes Late, Undead Queen of Evil and Tin! The show will play St. James Studio, London - 10 & 11 April 2014 at 8pm.
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 comes to St James' Studio for two nights only ahead of a national tour.
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.
Featuring these tip-top stories, the show is generously sponsored by Rathbone's Chemical Cures - "take a dose, dose, dose of Rathbones!"
The Man Who Was Ten Minutes Late: An RAF fighter pilot breaks the sound barrier but, in a horrific side effect, creates an evil doppelganger of himself! Can our hero protect his well-ordered life from the chaos that ensues?
Undead Queen Of Evil!: The archaeological find of the ages! An exhibition which thrills London! But is an ancient evil about to be reborn?
Tin!: Can a maverick mining engineer overcome an international conspiracy to flood Cornwall's largest mine and artificially raise the price of tin?
The Fitzrovians began in 2008, when founding members restaged vintage radio plays from America. They enjoyed wearing pencil moustaches so much that they were inspired to write their own material in a period style. Since then they have won widespread acclaim and performed extensively to sold-out houses including a season at Trafalgar Studios and a year-long residency at Shakespeare's Globe, London (Swan at The Globe / Underglobe).
