Present Laughter | Rufus Hound & Sean Foley In Conversation | Chichester Festival Theatre
Rufus Hound (Gary Essendine) in conversation with director Sean Foley about Noël Coward's writing, their new take on a classic and what audiences can expect to be greeted with in this bold and unique production. Actor Garry Essendine is at the height of his fame. He’s handsome, witty, surrounded by adoring fans, and about to take his latest theatrical hit overseas. He’s also in the middle of a raging mid-life crisis.This sparkling comedy about sex, fame and the theatre itself – and a man wrestling with his own self-image – is widely regarded as Noël Coward’s most autobiographical play. Present Laughter plays at Chichester Festival Theatre from 20 April 2018 - 12 May.See more of CFT here:Subscribe: http://bit.ly/cftsubscribeWebsite: http://bit.ly/cfthomePodcast: https://www.cft.org.uk/podcastSoundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/chichesterftFacebook: http://bit.ly/cftfacebookTwitter: http://twitter.com/ChichesterFTInstagram: http://bit.ly/cftinstaChichester Festival Theatre is one of the UK’s flagship theatres, renowned for the exceptionally high standard of its productions as well as its work with the community and young people.Situated in a cathedral city in West Sussex between the South Downs and the sea, the Festival Theatre’s bold thrust stage design makes it one of England’s most striking playhouses; a studio theatre, the Minerva Theatre, sits nearby.
