National Theatre Live, the best of British theatre broadcast to cinemas around the world, presents the screening of “Present Laughter”. Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy. As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful 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. "Present Laughter" is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness. Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors, $5 for students and are available at For more information, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit
