London Wonderground 2013 : 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. 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. Rippingly good fun!

The Fitzrovia Radio Hour are an acclaimed troupe whose period charms have worked wonders on venues including Shakespeare's Globe, Wilton's Music Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, as well as a sell-out West End season.
Radio plays of the 1940's performed with live sound effects and cut-glass theatricality to produce a heady comic cocktail. The plays are performed in evening dress, behind period microphones and with sound effects produced live. An hour-long show usually contains three stories – typically in genres such as horror, adventure, science fiction and romance – interspersed with advertisements for products such as whisky, cigarettes and stout.
