Harlequin Productions presents the Present Laughter, written by Noël Coward. This production runs from May 4 – May 27, 2017, at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. Tickets are available at www.harlequinproductions.org or 360-786-0151.
The irrepressible wit and style of Noel Coward sparkles in this romantic comedy set in 1938 in the handsome London flat of the popular and pampered actor Garry Essendine as he confronts his mid-life crisis. Garry has a week to prepare to travel for an extended touring commitment in Africa. But a series of hilarious events involving women who want to seduce him, an obsessed young playwright who wants to study him, his long-suffering secretary who wants to keep him on schedule, and his estranged wife who wants to guide him to safety, threaten to drive him to distraction before he can make an escape.
