National Theatre Live at The Hold: ‘Present Laughter’

The Hold are delighted to be able to screen this multi-award-winning production of Noël Coward’s comedy ‘Present Laughter’, featuring Andrew Scott (Vanya, Fleabag) at The Hold on Ipswich Waterfront.

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling 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.

Filmed live from The Old Vic in London during a sold-out run in 2019, Matthew Warchus (Matilda The Musical) directs this giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness. £10/person.  Book at
