PRESENT LAUGHTER (12A)
Playing at The Theatre
Sun 11th Oct
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 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.
Masks or face coverings should be worn at all times by anyone over 11 in the bar and foyer. In line with government guidance, masks may be removed in the auditorium if you are consuming food or drinks.
