Horace is a 1972 television play written by Roy Minton and directed by Alan Clarke, first broadcast as part of BBC One's Play for Today series on 21 March 1972.


Diabetic Horace (Barry Jackson) is mentally impaired and works in a joke shop. He befriends loner schoolboy, Gordon Blackett (Stephen Tantum) who retreats from his loveless home into an imaginary world.

The play was later developed as a six-part half-hour series for Yorkshire Television.
