Present Laughter was written by Noël Coward in 1939. The plot depicts a few days in the life of the successful and self-obsessed light comedy actor and matinee idol, Garry Essendine, who sits at the centre of his own universe contemplating his impending mid-life crisis; he’s recently turned forty.

Suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs, his line in 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 misdemeanours is discovered .... and all hell breaks loose!

Irene is eventually questioned by police after having written many abusive letters to the family,
