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 sold-out run at The Old Vic in London 2019, this Encore broadcast of Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

BBFC Cert - PG  /  approx 166 mins
