In 2018, Orange Theatre Company is proud to bring back the genius of Noel Coward to the Orange Civic Theatre in their production of Present Laughter. Directed by Rod Jones and Greg Pringle, this hilarious three act play is witty, sparkling and eminently theatrical.

Its star is matinée idol Garry Essendine, suave, hedonistic and too old, says his ex-wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line of eager, adoring debutantes is largely tolerated among his small circle of intimate friends, but playing closer to home, it’s not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa, the curtain is drawn back on a whole tangle of his misdemeanours. In between hustling infatuated conquests out of sight into the spare room, Garry gives a dazzling performance, centre stage in a light, charming, farcical comedy.
