The White Bear Theatre Presents Kenneth Horne Tribute HORNE A'PLENTY

From the team that brought you the West End hit Round The Horne...Revisited comes Horne A'Plenty, with scripts by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke. Horne A'Plenty is written as a tribute to one of the great Radio and TV performers, Kenneth Horne.

Two weeks before they were due to start the next series of Round the Horne, Kenneth Horne passed away. It was the 14th of February 1969. Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke had successfully written half of the fourth series with Barry Took, and had spent many months working on what would have comprised the fifth. Fast-forward 48 years, and Brian Cooke took these 'pieces' out of the drawers they'd been consigned to and read them all again. The show consists of many of those 'pieces', along with brand new material - and includes no less than four film parodies!

Horne A'Plenty is from pretty much the same team that brought you Round the Horne... Revisited some 12 years ago. Same director, almost all of the same actors, same musical director ... and same writers.

Brian Cooke and Johnnie Mortimer wrote scripts for and devised many of the top television sitcoms during the 1970s, including Man About the House, George and Mildred, and Robin's Nest. Cooke also wrote and created the 1980s TV sitcom Keep It in the Family, starring Robert Gillespie and the late-1960s/early-1970s sitcom Father, Dear Father starring Patrick Cargill.

Kenneth Horne's comedy career spanned over 20 years on BBC Radio, where he is best remembered for the comedy classics Much-Binding-In-The-Marsh, Beyond Our Ken and the legendary Round the Horne.
