Chichester Festival Theatre announces full casting for ‘PRESENT LAUGHTER’

Chichester Festival Theatre has announced full casting for the opening production of the 2018 Chichester Festival season, Noël Coward’s PRESENT LAUGHTER, which runs in the Festival Theatre from 20 April to 12 May, 2018.

Directed by Sean Foley, the cast is led by Rufus Hound as Garry Essendine, Katherine Kingsley as Liz Essendine and Tracy-Ann Oberman as Monica Reed.

They are joined by: Ben Allen (Roland Maule), Delroy Atkinson (Fred), Lucy Briggs-Owen (Joanna Lyppiatt), Lizzy Connolly (Daphne Stillington), Emilio Doorgasingh (Henry Lyppiatt), Tamzin Griffin (Miss Erikson), Carol Macready (Lady Saltburn) and Richard Mylan (Morris Dixon).


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.

Holed up in his studio, he is assailed from all quarters: a beautiful debutante wants to bed him, an aspiring playwright from Uckfield wants to worship him, and his own producer’s wife wants to… well, what exactly does she want? Under the sardonic eye of his long-suffering secretary, Monica, and the unshockable gaze of his estranged but determined wife, Garry struggles to keep all the balls in the air.
