NT Live: Present Laughter

Matthew Warchus (Pride) directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) as a star actor preparing for an overseas tour. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, he finds that his days at home become a whirlwind of love, sex, panic, and soul-searching. The Financial Times calls Noël Coward’s giddy and surprisingly modern play “a treat of a production: a timely depiction of the hollow nature of fame.”

This film is part of the World Stage on Screen series.
