Andrew Scott In Conversation

Supported by the Noël Coward Foundation

For me, it’s important that you see the human being behind the celebrity’ Andrew Scott

After playing Leo in Noël Coward’s dark romantic comedy Design for Living in 2010, and more recently performing Simon Stephens’ devastating monologue Sea Wall in 2018, Andrew Scott returns to The Old Vic stage for a third time to play Garry Essendine in Coward’s provocative comedy, Present Laughter.

Join us after the performance on Thu 25 Jul for a Voices Off Q&A with Andrew, who will be talking to writer and broadcaster Sarah Hemming about what it’s like to play the complex and much-coveted role of Garry – the star actor in the midst of an identity crisis, about to embark on an overseas tour. Get the opportunity to ask Andrew your own questions about the play and the relevance of Coward’s writing today.

You can still book for the performance of Present Laughter on the same evening, and the event is also open to anyone not attending the performance.

Please note that this event will begin directly following the performance of Present Laughter at approximately 10pm. An exact start time will be given nearer the event.

Tickets: £6

We are currently partway through a building project to double the amount of ladies’ loos, upgrade our access facilities and reconfigure our Box Office and foyer. This means that your visit will be a little different to a previous visit – find out more about getting around.
