About The Event

Present Laughter

by Noël Coward

The multi award-winning production of Noël Coward’s provocative comedy featuring Andrew Scott (Vanya, Fleabag) returns to the big screen.

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 during a sold out run in 2019, Matthew Warchus (Matilda The Musical) directs this giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

★★★★★ ‘Andrew Scott’s revelatory performance shows why Noël Coward is hailed a genius’ (Telegraph) ★★★★★ ‘Andrew Scott is wondrous in this revelatory refresh of Noël Coward’s classic comedy’ (Time Out) ★★★★★ ‘The show belongs to Scott’ (Times) ★★★★★ ‘Illuminating and luminously funny’ (WhatsOnStage)

Doors open at 7pm. Licenced Bar.
