Where did Radcliffe Royds come from?


I suppose it depends on where you start his story: is it the skip in Soho where he lived for six months, when he was nearing his lowest point? Or perhaps the Spark London night where he first told the story?

The truth is there are plenty of stories about Radcliffe. My favourite is probably his two-part longform interview on Dave Pickering's Getting Better Acquainted, but I'm sure there will be many more; he's started getting regular gigs as a professional storyteller and we're hoping he'll be fronting a radio pilot for us later in the year.

But Spark London is where it all started: it was a week-long run we did at the Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell, and we put out this episode shortly afterwards. Enjoy.
