Description

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (Vanya, All of Us Strangers, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy.

 

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colorful 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.

 

This production includes a 20-minute intermission.

 

The screening on Friday, August 16 features English subtitles as part of our commitment to make programs more accessible to d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
