The Play What I Wrote

About

When The Play What I Wrote opened in London's West End, originally directed by Kenneth Branagh, 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". Now a brand new production directed by The Rep's Artistic Director Sean Foley and co-written by Hamish McColl, Sean Foley and, of course, Eddie Braben will be bringing sunshine to Birmingham this Christmas. 'Hamish' has written a play, an epic set in the French Revolution called 'A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple'. 'Sean', 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 Sean needs to persuade a guest star to appear in the play what Hamish wrote… 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, Kylie Minogue, Nigel Havers, Jerry Hall, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting.
