Present Laughter

by Nöel Coward

After a few years’ foray into murder Mad Cow returns with a zippy comedy! 

Coward’s classic, sparkling farce follows the shenanigans of an actor of the highest calibre (in his own eyes at least), Gary Essendine, who always exudes a stately command of the stage. Unfortunately, he has slightly less control over his personal life, which, on the eve of a tour of Africa, is becoming very complicated. A cavalcade of young women are trying to lure him into bed, a playwright named Roland has become a little too attached, and various members of his staff have been having affairs with each other's wives.
It's enough to bring on a mid-life crisis, but Gary simply must get through it... by any means necessary!

This amateur production of “Present Laughter” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
