NT Live: Present Laughter—Screening

Event Navigation

NOTE: This is not a live performance; it is a high-definition film of the stage production captured live onstage in London. 

In Noël Coward’s provocative, borderline farce comedy, Present Laughter, Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) plays the lead character under Matthew Warchus’ direction. 

Star actor, Garry Essendine, and his colorful life are in danger of spiraling out of control as he prepares to embark on an overseas tour. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis, Garry spends his few remaining days at home within a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, and soul-searching while those closest to him compete for his attention. 

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy yet surprisingly modern reflection on both fame and loneliness.
