The Play What I Wrote is a comedy play celebrating the British comedy act of Morecambe and Wise.

Playing the ‘Comte De Toblerone’, a fugitive from the French Revolution, in a play by the Ernie Wise character (‘A Tight Squeeze For The Scarlet Pimple’), Tom’s job was to take a gentle ribbing from the rest of the Eric and Ernie characters. 

Previous stars to take on the cameo role have included Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Joanna Lumley, Daniel Radcliffe, Kylie Minogue, Nigel Havers, Jerry Hall, Sir Ian McKellen, Dawn French and Sting.

The new couple were joined by fellow actor Charlie Cox on the red carpet at the event held at the iconic Winter Garden Theatre.

While Tom and Zawe have never publicly confirmed their relationship status, the couple were first linked together in 2019 while starring in the West End play Betrayal in which they portrayed a strained couple. 

Last year it was revealed the pair had moved in together after months of romance rumours, and they are now said to be living together in Atlanta, Georgia.

An insider told The Sun: ‘Tom and Zawe have stayed quiet about their relationship but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the US.

 ‘They are very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life away from the glitz and glamour of the showbiz world.
