Lipa radio - Culture by Richard Shaw

This is a great play, I loved it as it reminds me of so many people I know.

An idealist actor and the activist artist unhappy with the way that their (lack of ) careers are progressing take direct action by unfurling a flag of Jimmy Tarbuck on Radio City Tower. Eddy is the rogue artist with attitude and by far the more interesting character.

Their comment on the lack of opportunities for creatives to find work in the city celebrated as the Cultural Capital is clear, but how it will develop I wait to see.
