THAME Players will be performing Noel Coward’s Present Laughter – a play which follows the exploits of temperamental prima donna actor.

It is believed Coward wrote the lead role for himself. During the story the actor, played by Tim Proctor, has a fling with his manger’s wife and ends up involved again with former wife.

The play will see Chris Parker make his debut as a director for the Players. Clare Peecock, who plays Daphne Stillington, and Alistair Mackay, who plays Roland Maule, will also make their Thame debuts in the show.

> Present Laughter runs May 8-12 at the Players’ Theatre. For more details visit www.thameplayers.co.uk
