Ethel M. Barber Theatre
30 Arts Circle Drive
on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University
Evanston, IL 60208
Located on the southeast part of the Evanston Campus, just off Sheridan Road and Campus Drive. The Barber Theatre is at the top of the hill facing the lake, right next to the Block Museum, in the Arts Circle.

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre's groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theatre live (or for US venues, delayed) from the London stage to cinemas and theaters across the UK and around the world.

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter. As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching. Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.
