Present LaughterSherlock baddie Andrew Scott, currently better known as 'the hot priest' thanks to his starring role in Fleabag series two, leads an all-star cast in the Old Vic's staging of Noel Coward's comedy, Present Laughter. The cast also includes Luke Thallon, Sophie Thompson, Suzie Toase and Indira Varma who plays Luther's wife in the BBC detective drama. Before opening night director, Matthew Warchus, said: "Originally titled Sweet Sorrow, Noel Coward's most autobiographical work is a giddy and passionate observation of narcissism, hero worship and loneliness."

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
