The Play What I Wrote - 2003 - Broadway History , Info & More

Lyceum Theatre (Broadway)
149 W. 45th St. New York, NY 10036

This comedy from London revolves around Hamish, who no longer wants to be part of his double comedy act with Sean. Instead he wants to see the play that he has written, A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple, properly mounted on the Broadway stage. But before that can happen he needs a major star to play the supporting role to his lead. The Play What I Wrote stars Sean Foley, Hamish McColl and Toby Jones, and a surprise celebrity guest star.



A revolving door of guest stars will appear in The Play What I Wrote. The identity of these surprise celebrity guests will be a tightly guarded secret
