Tom Hiddleston is joining the cast of a made for TV version of comedy The Play What I Wrote.
He’ll be the guest star in the show’s first dates of a new UK tour at Theatre Royal, Bath.
The production is being filmed by the BBC for transmission later this year.
The Play What I Wrote originally opened in London’s West End in 2001 and was directed by Kenneth Branagh.
The story follows two comedians (not too dissimilar to the great Morecambe and Wise). The character Thom has written a play, an epic set in the French Revolution called A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple. Dennis, on the other hand, wants to continue with their double act. He believes that if they perform a tribute to Morecambe and Wise, Thom’s confidence will be restored and the double act will go on. But first Dennis needs to persuade a guest star to appear in the play what Thom wrote…
Each night on stage a special guest star appears in the show.
