Originally directed by Kenneth Branagh and liberally praised by the critics, The Play What I Wrote premiered in 2001, with its two main writers, Hamish McColl and Sean Foley, also taking the starring roles.
Sean is now artistic director at the Birmingham Rep, of course, and is the man at the helm for this latest version of the West End and Broadway hit.
“We’re putting on a fantastic show for this 20th anniversary production,” says Sean. “We’re using our original script, and I’ve been talking to Hamish and we’ve updated it. We have a few new tricks up our sleeve!
“It’s a significant anniversary of the original production and it’s great to revisit that material. It was, and is, a truly great piece of comedy theatre.”
Featuring script contributions from Morecambe & Wise writer Eddie Braben, the production comes complete with a celebrity guest star.
Festive-season alternatives to pantomime really don’t get any better than this.
