NT Recorded Live: Present Laughter

NT Recorded Live: Present Laughter

Another chance to see Andrew Scott (Ripley, All of Us Strangers) 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 in 2019, and re-released for a short window only by the National Theatre, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
