Pear Theatre presents in its intimate setting Noël Coward’s Present Laughter that bursts at the seams with riotous comedy propelled by a stage full of memorably quirky characters who get themselves and each other into a myriad of messes through adulteries, seductions, threats of blackmail, star-worshipping, and a star’s ego that knows no bounds. In doing so, the Pear proves once again that this is the small-sized theatre that can take on big-stage ventures with full aplomb and total success.
