PRESENT LAUGHTER by Noel Coward

At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol, Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. The plot follows a few days in the life of the successful and self-obsessed light-comedy actor as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment in Africa. Just before he escapes on tour, the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks loose. Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with women who want to seduce him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his estranged wife, cope with a crazed young playwright, and overcome his impending mid-life crisis. Coward's Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change.

By arrangement with Samuel French.
