The Old Vic Artistic Director Matthew Warchus will helm a new production of Noël Coward's Present Laughter at the London venue, with previews starting June 17.

Olivier Award winner Andrew Scott, who's appeared on Broadway in The Vertical Hour and in the West End in Hamlet, will star in the comedy; among those joining him are fellow Olivier winner Sophie Thompson (Guys & Dolls), Luke Thallon (The Inheritance), Suzie Toase (One Man, Two Guvnors), and Indira Varma (Luther).

The production will feature sets and costumes by Rob Howell, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, and sound design by Simon Baker.

Opening night is set for June 25; performances are scheduled through August 10.

The Old Vic is currently home to a revival of Arthur Miller's The American Clock directed by Rachel Chavkin, which runs through March 30. Miller's All My Sons will follow April 13–June 8.
