The Play What I Wrote tours to The Lowry from Mon 31 January to Sat 5 February 2022, with mystery guest stars in tow

Surprise special guest stars will make an appearance when The Play What I Wrote tours to The Lowry from Mon 31 January to Sat 5 February 2022.

Producer David Pugh along with Theatre Royal Bath Productions, are delighted to announce that following a spectacular Christmas season, The Play What I Wrote will tour to The Lowry from Mon 31 January to Sat 5 February 2022. 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 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.

Audiences can expect a night of comic bliss.

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.

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, Denise Welch, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting.
