Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott of BBC’s Sherlock and Fleabag in Noël Coward’s provoactive comedy Present Laughter.
As he prepares to embark on a overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling 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.
“A treat of a production: a timely depiction of the hollow nature of fame led by a virtuoso yet beautifully nuanced performance.”- Financial Times
