PREVIEW: Radio Active, UK Tour

The beloved radio comedy is back and embarking on a tour of the UK to celebrate its 40th anniversary of the show first being performed live on stage.

Based on the sketch show created during their years in the Oxford Revue, Radio Active was originally written by Angus Deayton and Geoffrey Perkins. The show was then adapted for BBC Radio 4, and ran for 53 award winning episodes across seven series throughout the 1980’s.

Now the show is heading back out on the road to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary since it was first performed live on stage. The original cast  including Angus Deayton, Helen Atkinson Wood, Michael Fenton Stevens and Philip Pope are all back together to performing some of their classic and best-loved radio scripts.

Audiences can expect to be reunited with characters such as  long suffering radio host Mike Channel, original foodie Anna Daptor, andthe accident-prone Martin Brown, as well as the cast’s original musical creations, responsible for such parody bands as The Hee Bee Gee Bees and Status Quid.
