THE PLAY WHAT I WROTE TOUR 2022

Play What I Wrote Tour

A revival of The Play What I Wrote, the acclaimed play that premiered back in 2001 is to tour in 2022 following a triumphant season at the Birmingham Rep over the festive period. The Play What I Wrote Tour tickets are now on sale.

The Play What I Write tour is produced by David Pugh together with Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The tour will commence on 12 January taking in venues across England. The full tour schedule is shown below and tickets are now on sale.

Starring Dennis Herdman, Mitesh Soni, and Thom Tuck, this new production is directed by double Olivier Award winner Sean Foley.

The production opened to 5 star critical acclaim at The Rep and audiences have been rolling in the aisles as this comedy masterpiece has brought its own special brand of hilarity to the stage. Once again, surprise special guest stars have been making their appearances in the show with Hollywood superstar Tom Hiddleston joining the company on the opening night.

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…

The Play What I Wrote is a comedy play written by Hamish McCollSean Foley and Eddie Braben, starring Foley and McColl (the double act The Right Size, playing characters named “Sean” and “Hamish”), with Toby Jones, directed by Kenneth Branagh and produced in its original production by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers. The show is a celebration of the British comedy double act Morecambe and Wise, and an irreverent and farcical exploration of the nature of double acts in general.

There’s also a mystery guest star at every performance, previous mystery guest stars have included Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Joanna Lumley, Daniel Radcliffe, Kylie Minogue, Nigel Havers, Denise Welch, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting. Who will you see when you see The Play What I Wrote?
