The multi award-winning production of Noël Coward’s provocative comedy featuring Andrew Scott (ALL OF US STRANGERS, NT Live: VANYA) returns to the big screen.

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.

Filmed live from The Old Vic in London during a sold-out run in 2019, Matthew Warchus (Matilda The Musical) directs this giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire, and loneliness.

This production's 180-minute runtime includes one intermission.


Originally scheduled to debut at Amherst Cinema in late March of 2020, we are thrilled to finally enjoy PRESENT LAUGHTER on the big screen.
