'Present Laughter' at The Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston
THE GATE ON TOUR
THE SPOLETO FESTIVAL USA, CHARLESTON
MAY 26 – JUNE 13
                                                                                               
The Gate Theatre Company is currently on tour at the prestigious Spoleto Festival in Charleston, USA
with Noël Coward’s brilliant comedy of manners
PRESENT LAUGHTER
‘Lavish…sharp and funny’ Irish Independent
 
Following a highly acclaimed Dublin run, the Gate returned for its seventh visit to Charleston, with Noël Coward’s classic comedy Present Laughter. Elegantly staged and luxuriously costumed, this play is a delight of barbed witticisms, ironic comedy and, upon occasion, chaotic farce.
 
Present Laughter opened at the historic Dock Street Theatre on May 26 which reopened after a three-year-long restoration, with most performances already sold-out. The prolific opening ceremony took place on Friday, May 28. Guest speakers include Gate Theatre Director, Michael Colgan, Spoleto Festival General Director, Nigel Redden and Chairperson Martha Ingram, after which Mayor Joseph P. Riley Junior officially opened the festival. 
 
Enjoying the sun and cloudless skies in the deep South, under the play’s director Alan Stanford, are Stephen Brennan, who plays the lead role of Garry Essendine, Fiona Bell, Barbara Brennan, Michael James Ford, Peter Gaynor, John Kavanagh, Paris Jefferson, Dermot Magennis, Fiona O'Shaughnessy, Susan FitzGerald and Jade Yourell. Set design by Eileen Diss, costumes by international couturier Peter O’Brien, lighting by James McConnell and composition by Denis Clohessy. Previous Gate productions at Spoleto USA include Salomé (1990), I’ll Go On (1995), Lady Windermere’s Fan (1998), Two Plays After (2002), Pride and Prejudice (2003) and The Constant Wife (2007).
 
Present Laughter opened at the Dock Street Theatre on 26 May and will run until 13 June.
