I Found My Horn sees a man wakes up at 40 to a broken marriage, a beckoning bedsit and the realisation that he has done nothing to make himself memorable. Then he clambers into the attic…

After a lay-off of 25 years, in I Found My Horn, Jasper Rees seeks redemption via the 16 feet of treacherous brass tubing he never mastered in his youth. Resuming his old French horn, he sets himself an impossible task: to perform a Mozart concerto in front of a paying audience of horn fanatics.

“Don’t do it,” says his mentor. “It takes nerves of steel to play the French horn in public!” But for Rees, there is no choice. It is now or never.

I Found My Horn is adapted from the book by Rees, serialised on Radio 4’s Book of the Week.

I Found My Horn enjoyed critical success on its short tour in 2008, and now returns to London for a longer run.
