Present Laughter

Written by Noel Coward
and directed by Karen Wakeham

Performed at Heidelberg Theatre from
25th MARCH – 9th APRIL, 2022

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.

Noel Coward’s scintillating witty play is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
