The Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s Christmas Special brings a heady comic cocktail mixing the chauvinist attitudes of 1940s Britain with sharp contemporary humour to the St James Studio in the run-up to Christmas.
Recreating the unique spirit of 1940s radio plays and brilliantly evoking a dinner-jacketed age of casual imperialism, The Fitzrovia Radio Hour’s Christmas Special is performed with cut-glass theatricality blending homage and satire.
The Fitzrovians began restaging vintage radio plays from America in 2008. Since then they’ve enjoyed wearing pencil moustaches so much that they have been inspired to write their own material in a period style.
They arrive at the St James Studio following runs ay the Trafalgar Studios and Shakespeare’s Globe.
