NT Live Encore

Present Laughter rating-12a

By Noël Coward, 1:30pm Buxton Cinema - Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

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.

Please note this is a pre-recorded screening, filmed live in front of an audience.
