Present Laughter archiveGary Essendine is the complete actor - self-obsessed, talented, sexy and charming - but his life is one long act. Haunted by the trauma of turning 40 he goes in for a string of one-night stands and casual flings but with so many under his spell he finds himself trapped in a position even he can't charm his way out of.
