“THE FUNNIEST PLAY THIS YEAR” — IPSWICH 24

We interrupt the horror to bring you this urgent newsflash… clutch your crucifix and grasp your garlic as we recreate the glamour of a 1930’s BBC Radio play, inviting you to take the role of studio audience as West End and Edinburgh Fringe sensations The Fitzrovia Radio Hour return to the Mercury once more to tell the story of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Performed with cut-glass theatricality and backed by a phalanx of bizarrely created sound effects, the Fitzrovia Radio Hour mixes the attitudes of 1930s Britain with sharp contemporary humour to produce a heady fringe comedy cocktail.

Will Jonathan Harker escape Dracula’s clutches? What will become of the beautiful young Lucy? And why is that big grey wolf biting into a melon? Well, how are you supposed to create the sound of a person exploding?

Get ready to applaud please… 5-4-3-2-1, we’re on air!
