Presentlaughter_small A gallery of friends, lovers, relatives and theatre acolytes sparkle around stage star Garry Essendine like bubbles in fine champagne. While he struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love-struck ingénue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress.

Present Laughter stars Ian Ogilvy, Christina Pickles, Carolyn Seymour, and Yeardley Smith. Directed by Dennis Erdman. Includes interviews with John Lahr, senior drama critic for The New Yorker, and Barry Day, editor of The Letters of Noel Coward.
