With its ground-breaking mix of innuendo, camp caricature and word-play, Round The Horne captured a record-breaking regular listenership of more than 15 million and remains one of the best-loved programmes in radio history. Its unique blend of humour is even more infectious today as its bizarre collection of characters come to life on stage from the brilliantly inventive and often outrageous scripts, created by zany duo Barry Took and Marty Feldman. Who can resist the charms of J. Peasemould Gruntfuttock, Rambling Syd Rumpo, the heart-stopping Dame Celia Molestrangler, fiendish mastermind Chou En Ginsberg M.A. (failed) and his common-as-muck concubine Lotus Blossom, those two 'resting professionals' Julian and Sandy and many more... Whether you are a fan of the original radio series or new to this special recipe of comedy, we guarantee the tears of laughter will be rolling down your cheeks with this brand new selection of material.
