About this show

Winner of the 2002 Olivier Award, The Play What I Wrote is a play which revolves around Hamish, who no longer wants to be part of his comedy double 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 this can happen he needs a major star to play the supporting role to his lead role. The Play What I Wrote stars Sean Foley, Hamish McColl and Toby Jones (Olivier Award winner for this performance) and a surprise celebrity guest star. Kenneth Branagh directs. A revolving door of guest stars appears. In London during two sold-out nine-month engagements at The Wyndham's Theatre, Ralph Fiennes, Sir Ian McKellen, Roger Moore, Jerry Hall, Sting and Ewan McGregor were a few of the lucky notables who earned a featured spot in the West End's hottest ticket. The identity of the surprise celebrity guests for the New York engagement is kept a tightly guarded secret. Student tickets will be available for $10 at the Lyceum Theatre box office beginning at 10 AM every performance day, except for Sunday when the box office opens at Noon. There is a limit of 4 tickets per student. Students must have a valid I.D. This offer is subject to availability. The usual $1.25 facilities fee is included in the price. Children under 4 are not permitted in the theater.
