The Play What I Wrote - 2021 - 7/10
Comedian duo Sean and Hamish are in a dry patch.
Sean has written a serious play, which he wants produced.
Hamish wants to accept the lucrative gig of doing a Morecambe and Wise tribute.
Hamish eventually persuades Sean that Ian McKellen will be in this show, as will Scarlett Johansson.
Fever paced farce gallops from the onset and seldom slows the pace.
A hectic blend of low brow, puns and music hall (vaudeville).
Performances always have a surprise guest star in the second act.
This one features Tom Hiddleston. The Broadway play I saw years ago had Alan Alda.
The play is very English, and most of the Morecambe and Wise references may elude outsiders.
Rather, enjoy this for what it is; hold tight and laugh along.
