I Found My Horn at Trafalgar Studios 2
I Found My Horn by Jasper Rees and
Jonathan Guy Lewis will open at the Trafalgar Studios (Studio 2) on 2 April, following
previews from 1 April, running until 3 May 2014. The play was originally performed at the
Tristan Bates Theatre and Minerva Theatre Chichester in 2008/9, and has since been updated
ahead of a UK and USA tour.
This play with music was adapted from the book of the same name by Jasper Rees and is
directed by Harry Burton. As a forty year old man wakes up to a broken marriage, he realises
that he has done nothing in his life for him to be remembered by. As he loses his job, he
climbs into his attic and finds a French horn that he used to play as a child. Inspired by
the finding, he decides to set himself a challenge: to perform a Mozart horn concerto in
front of an audience of horn enthusiasts.
Jonathan Guy Lewis stars as 'Jasper', the forty year old man with wild ambition. He
is known to TV audiences for his roles in 'London's Burning', 'Solider Soldier' and
'Coronation Street'. His stage credits include 'A Few Good Men', 'An Inspector Calls' and
'Peer Gynt' at the National Theatre. He also wrote the play 'Our Boys' which was recently
revived at the Duchess Theatre.
I Found My Horn is produced by Wildcard
Theatre who previously produced 'The Leisure Society' at the Trafalgar Studios 2 in 2012.
