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 colorful life is in danger of spiraling 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 in 2019, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
