The Play What I Wrote
This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:
This musical farce is a celebration of the British double act Morecambe and Wise, and an irreverent and farcical exploration of the nature of double acts in general. Its title is drawn from one of Morecambe and Wise’s catchphrases, as is “A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple”, the “play within a play” (with a cameo by a mystery celebrity guest star) which formed the play’s second half. It is named after the “play wot I wrote”, the inept play supposedly written by Wise and featuring a celebrity guest which formed the finale to each Morecambe and Wise show. In the The Play Wot I Wrote, “Sean” writes a similarly inept play and is humoured by “Hamish” in the first half by having it put on. As in the Morecambe and Wise antecedent, the celebrity would play him or herself set up to appear, rather foolishly, as the title character of this play within a play.
