Present Laughter
Writers:
Noel Coward
Director:
Thomas Joy
Actor Garry Essendine is at the height of his fame. He’s handsome, witty, surrounded by adoring fans, and about to take his latest theatrical hit overseas. He’s also in the middle of a raging mid-life crisis. We find him in his once-beautiful apartment, hounded from every corner: a beautiful debutante wants to bed him, an aspiring playwright wants to worship him and his own producer’s wife wants to become better acquainted…

Under the ever-rolling eyes of his long-suffering secretary and the unshockable gaze of his estranged but determined wife Garry struggles to keep all the balls in the air.

This sparkling comedy about sex, fame and the theatre itself – and a man wrestling with his own self-image – is widely regarded as Noël Coward’s most autobiographical play.

All seats £14
