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. Note this production is filmed in front of a live audience, rather than broadcast live.Present Laughter is also playing on-stage at The Old Vic in London from 17 June to 10 August 2019.
