Why See Present Laughter?
Vain matinee idol Garry Essedine becomes entangled in the amusing personal crises of the people around him, which are largely of his own making
Considered by some to be Coward's most autobiographical play, Present Laughter concerns an actor who takes Shakespeare's Twelfth Night admonition* all too seriously, continually indulging his considerable appetite for wine, women and sleeping late. Might there be more to life than this?
What is love?
Tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What's to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty;
Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty,
Youth's a stuff will not endure.
