See STAGEtwo’s ‘Present Laughter’ This Weekend
After the weird weather we've been having, it's time to turn that frown upside down with Noel Coward's "Present Laughter".
At the center of his own universe sits matinee idol Gary Essendine: suave, hedonistic, and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line of harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose. Noel 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.

Garry, Henry, Morris, and Joanna have gotten themselves into quite a predicament. Now it's up to Liz (Garry's wife), and Monica (Garry's secretary) to fix it; as they usually do. And it's up to Fred and Ms. Erikson to just roll with the punches. Also, there's a Mr. Maul there to see Garry...Oh, and Ms. Stillington is in the spare room...
