On a nationwide tour, the show can be see at The Plaza in Stockport on Tuesday March 10 and WednesdayMarch11. The story opens in 1935. Helen is 16 and fighting a bitter battle with her parents for the right to educate herself and go out to work. During the Great Depression, Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market crashed and the family were suddenly thrown into pov- erty. Leaving behind the nannies,servantsandcom- fortablemiddle-class life in the SouthWest of England, the Forrester’s chose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock. Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave anddesperate to escape. By 1939, now aged 20 and with Britain on the brink of war, she has still never been kissed by a man. But things start look- ing up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman andfalls in love.Theall-star cast includes Sian Reeves who can currently be seen sending shockwaves across the cobbles of TV soapCoronation Street. She is also known for her roles in Emmerdale, EastEnders, Cutting It - as well asbeing intheoriginal cast of the 1985 stage pro- ductionof LesMisérables. Mark Moraghan is best known for his roleasmedic Owen Davies in Holby City. Other TV credits include Coronation Street, London’s Burning and Brookside. Parry Glasspool is best known for play- ing Harry Thompson in Hollyoaks. After five years in Hollyoaks, Parry made a dramatic exit inahigh-pro- file storyline when he was murdered. Lucy Dixon is widely known for her tel- evision roles as Danielle Harker in Waterloo Road and Tilly Evans inHollyoaks. And Eric Potts has been a regular face on TV screens for more than 20 years. He is probably best known for playing the eccentric baker Diggory Compton in Coronation Street, and other screen credits include Doctor Who, Heartbeat,TheRoyal, Last Of The Summer Wine, and Emmerdale. “OH, Mr Horne! How bona to vada your dolly old eek!” From the producers of the UK tours of The Goon Show and Han- cock’s Half Hour comes another radio comedy classic live on stage. From 1965 to 1968 there wasn’t a big- ger radio programme in Britain than the g r o u n d - b r e a k i n g Round the Horne. For half-an-hour every Sunday after- noon, audiences of up to 15 million people would gather around the wireless to listen to Kenneth Horne and his merry crew get up to all sorts of mischief. With its infamous movie spoofs and hilar- ious regular characters such as Rambling Sid Rumpo, Charles and Fiona, J Peasemold Gruntfuttock, and Julian and Sandy, Round the Horne was one of the biggest and best radio comedy shows of all time, and still endures today, 50 years on. Come and take a step back in time to the BBC’s Paris Independent WHAT’S ON Drama on the banks of the Mersey Going Round the Horne again Studios and experi- ence this comedy clas- sic live, with original scripts by Barry Took and Marty Feldman at the Lyceum Thea- tre in Crewe on Friday March 20.
