Noel Coward’s ‘Present Laughter’


The Beverly Theatre Guild (BTG) is excited to announce its upcoming play Present Laughter, a comedy by famed English playwright Noël Coward. Performances are February 16 – 18, 2024 at the Baer Theater at Morgan Park Academy, the home theater of BTG. Present Laughter tells the story of a few days in the life of Garry Essendine, a self-infatuated matinee idol slipping into middle age. The intertwining relationships between the characters — including his wife, girlfriend, secretary, manager, a young playwright who worships him, and others — have entertained audiences since Coward wrote the play in 1939. Critics consider the play “a timeless, imperishable comedy” that is “wittily impudent and neatly invented.”

The Beverly Theatre Guild is Chicago’s longest running community theatre company. BTG productions are performed at the Baer Theater, a 425-seat venue with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, located at 2153 West 111th Street on the campus of the Morgan Park Academy, with ample free parking. Information on BTG may be found at beverlytheatreguild.org.
