Outdoor Theatre with Changeling Theatre: Present Laughter

7th July, doors open at 5:00pm, £26.50 per person

Performed on the South Lawn overlooking our historic gardens, Penshurst Place is excited to welcome back Changeling Theatre, this year performing Noel Coward's semi-biographical play.

Garry Essendine is a superstar actor and personality, gracing the front covers of all the most fashionable magazines. A charismatic playboy, he is the toast of the town on both sides of the pond.

About to embark on another world tour, Garry is suddenly overwhelmed by an identity crisis. With everyone wanting a piece of him, Garry recognises his own toxic desire to be in the spotlight. Essendine, for the keen eye, is an anagram of neediness.

“I am apt to worry too much about what people think of me”

Present Laughter has been billed as “the best comedy of its kind” and is a largely autobiographical play, with many of the characters based on writer Noël Coward’s inner circle. The play is a razor sharp and highly comic exploration of the ups and downs of fame brought up to date in the Instagram age. Where the leading man struggles to present his genuine self above the magnitude of his stage, screen and social media persona.
