Present Laughter
by Boerne Community Theatre

Mar. 06 - Mar. 07

At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: 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 misdemeanors is discovered. And all hell breaks loose.

Noel Coward’s Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change.


AUDITIONS: On Sunday and Monday, March 6 and 7, 2022, both at 7 PM, Christine Crowley will hold auditions for Noel Coward's Present Laughter, a farce that will run in May. Roles are available for 5 men and 6 women, ages 20's to 60's. Light British accents needed. Scripts are available for 48-hour checkout at the theatre.
