The show won Best Comedy at the Olivier Awards this year .
The play received positive notices from the popular press whern it opened in November last year..... MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN said, “Tear-inducingly funny show…..the gags come thick and fast.” SHERIDAN MORLEY for TELETEXT said, “The most anarchic, surreal and original comedy to have hit the West End in ages. “ NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD said, “But though Foley and McColl are brilliant slap-stick pranksters, their Morecambe and Wise routines are strictly for their legions of afficionados.” TERRI JUDD for THE INDEPENDENT said, “The Play What I Wrote, brought a touch of sunshine to the West End of London.”
