REVIEW: Katherine Ryan at the Portsmouth Guildhall

Have your say

Noel Coward’s comedy of manners, Present Laughter, is being performed by One Off Productions from September 25-28.

At the Kings Theatre, Southsea, the play follows the life of self-obsessed actor Garry Essendine as he prepares to go to Africa.

But he needs to deal with several interruptions, including women who want to seduce him and his estranged wife Liz. And he’s about to turn 40.

Tickets: £8 to £12 from the Kings Theatre, Southsea, on (023) 9282 8282 or go to kings-southsea.com.
