Horne A’Plenty is adapted by Brian Cooke, the last surviving writer from the radio series, who also adapted Round the Horne… RevisitedRead Brian’s full blog on his relationship with Kenneth Horne, Round the Horne and how he came to write the new show.

Comedy classic Round the Horne ran for four years on BBC Radio between 1965 and 1968. Created by Barry Took and Marty Feldman, it starred Kenneth Horne along with series regulars Kenneth Williams, Hugh Paddick and Betty Marsden, as well as the show’s announcer, Douglas Smith.

Round the Horne … Revisited, based on scripts from the radio original, started life at the White Bear Theatre in 2003 before transferring to the West End in January 2004 and touring extensively. It was later filmed for BBC Television.

White Bear artistic director Michael Kingsbury directs Horne A’Plenty with four of the original Round the Horne cast members reprising their roles: Jonathan Rigby as Kenneth Horne, Robin Sebastian as Kenneth Williams, Kate Brown as Betty Marsden and Charles Armstrong as Douglas Smith. David Morley Hale joins the company as Hugh Paddick.
