Theatre Night presents: An excerpt from Sailor Beware

A comedy by Philip King and Falkland Cary.
The action of the play takes place in the living-room of the Hornetts' house in a small inland town.
A special performance before an invited audience

An excerpt from "Sailor Beware"

One of the most successful comedies for many years has undoubtedly been Sailor Beware, which last month celebrated its second anniversary at the Strand Theatre. It introduced to the West End a comparatively unknown repertory actress, Peggy Mount, and overnight brought her stardom in the role of Emma Hornett. As the all-powerful, all-dominating Mother who rules the Hornetts' nest with a voice of thunder she can strike terror into the heart of any would-be suitor for her daughter, Shirley, especially if, as in this case, he happens to be a sailor...
Both Peggy Mount, and her stage husband, Cyril Smith, appeared in the highly successful film version of Sailor Beware, and tonight's theatre excerpt should give viewers a good idea why this hilarious comedy is nearing its 1,000th performance.
From the Strand Theatre at 7.35

An excerpt from Sailor Beware!

A comedy by Philip King and Falkland Cary.
Introduced by Brian Johnston.
The action of the play takes place in the living-room of the Hornetts' house in a small inland town.
A special performance before an invited audience from the Strand Theatre, London (by arrangement with Jack Waller and Send Manor Trust Ltd.)
'Hornett' is only her married name - but does Ma live up to it! She means well, but what a dictatorial and rampaging matriarch she is, quite unaware of the damage she may do. She runs the household and Pa takes it all meekly and concentrates on his hobby of breeding ferrets. Now Shirley, Ma's only child, is to be married, and to a sailor. There is in the house, in sister-in-law Ann Wilton, a striking example of what a broken romance can mean, even twenty years after the event. Must Shirley suffer the same fate?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
