PRESENT LAUGHTER – A Noel Coward Classic!
Matinée idol Gary Essendine has it all: wealth, fame, good looks, a nice line in witty repartée and a splendid selection of dressing gowns. The centre of his own universe, he has more fans than he knows what to do with. The fact that he’s also vain, egotistical, bad tempered and on the brink of middle age is neither here nor there . .
An Englishman Abroad begins with actress Coral Browne in a Moscow theatre dressing room in 1958, dealing with an inebriated visitor. Funny, touching and perceptive, An Englishman Abroad explores the life of a very British double-agent coming to terms with exile.
Pitlochry Festival Theatre 2013 Summer Season
Following the theatres spectacular productions of Kiss Me, Kate and My Fair Lady, they open the 2013 Summer Season with yet another multi award-winning Broadway classic: Hello Dolly! This colourful, exuberant and wildly funny adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s comedy The Matchmaker – itself a big hit at the PFT back in 2003 – is packed with fabulous songs by the great Jerry Herman (Mack And Mabel, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles), while Michael Stewart’s book celebrates generosity, romance and the sheer joy of life itself. Tuneful, irrepressible, unmissable!
A CHORUS OF DISAPPROVAL by Alan Ayckbourn
Alan Ayckbourn is the most popular and most often performed living playwright at PFT. Hailed by some as his greatest play, A Chorus Of Disapproval is also the funniest and most wickedly accurate portrait of am dram life ever created. Not seen on PFT’s stage since 1995, this acclaimed, laugh-out-loud comedy is guaranteed to be one of the stars of 2013!
LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN by Oscar Wilde
