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.

★★★★★ - “Andrew Scott’s revelatory performance shows why Noel Coward is hailed a genius” -Telegraph
★★★★★ - “The show belongs to Andrew Scott” -The Times
★★★★★ - "Illuminating and luminously funny" -WhatsOnStage
