Present Laughter by Noël Coward


Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy
Present Laughter.


As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is
in danger of spiraling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many
and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are
a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.
Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly
modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
