In The Play What I Wrote
Presented by David Pugh, Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Birmingham Repertory Theatre. By Sean Foley, Hamish McColl and Eddie Braben
York Theatre Royal, 27 June – 2 July
Thom has written a play, an epic set in the French Revolution called ‘A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple’. Dennis on the other hand, wants to continue with their double act. He believes that if they perform a tribute to Morecambe and Wise, Hamish’s confidence will be restored and the double act will go on.
But first Dennis needs to persuade a guest star to appear in the play what Thom wrote…
In the cast of The Play What I Wrote at York Theatre Royal from 27 June to 2 July are Dennis Herdman and Thom Tuck as the two comedians with Mitesh Soni as Arthur, their comedy sidekick and numerous other roles.
With a mystery guest star at every performance, this “recklessly, tear-inducingly funny show” (The Guardian) is “a loving celebration of comic genius which is itself touched with comic genius” (Daily Telegraph).
Previous mystery guest stars have included Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Joanna Lumley, Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Hiddleston, Kylie Minogue, Nigel Havers, Denise Welch, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting. The big question is : Who will you see when you see The Play What I Wrote? The answer is: You won’t know until you see the show.
When The Play What I Wrote opened in London’s West End, every single review was a rave, every show a sell-out and it won every major theatre award. The Sunday Times called it “a triumph” and The Observer said “audiences weep with laughter”.
“A glorious brilliantly judged triumph” – Daily Telegraph
“The gags come thick and fast producing a kind of comic delirium” – Guardian
