A young man takes walks along a canal and is intrigued by the music coming from one particular barge. What he discovers as he delves into the mystery of the sounds of Radio Gadfly will take him on a journey much further than the canal. Felix Trench’s Radioman is an hour of delicate theatrical imagination combined with a sonic creativity that has moments of true magic. The stage set is simple but effective – the interior of the barge – and the soundscape (performed live on stage) takes us from the familiar towpath to the cosmic. The performance by Trench of his own script is thoughftul and detailed; this is lean and direct atmospheric theatre. Combining the observant eye and poetic notes of WG Sebald and the mind-expanding scope of Olaf Stabledon, Radioman is a trip well worth taking.
