Plot Summary

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBCs Sherlock, Fleabag) in Nol Cowards provocative comedy Present Laughter. As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendines 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, Garrys 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.
