Mr. Foley, The Radio Operator

By Frances Kay in collaboration with Theatre Lovett

Old Jack Foley has a sore toe and it’s not getting better. Once when he was young and strong he dreamed of joining the circus. But now, tired and grey, he sits alone by his radio twiddling the dials on his memories. Theatre Lovett invite you into their world of radio waves, sorrowful partings and hilarious slapstick comedy in Mr. Foley, The Radio Operator. Join Louis Lovett as he conjures characters and chapters full of charm from Mr. Foley’s colourful past.
