***Star Indira Varma to introduce the Dec 9 presentation, joined by Alan Brodie of the Noël Coward Archive.***

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.

Filmed live from The Old Vic in London and presented here in encore screenings, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
