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.
