NT Live: The Magistrate
From the National Theatre's third season of live recordings direct from the London stage, this is Arthur Wing Pinero's Victorian farce. Screenings are limited.
"With his louche air and a developed taste for smoking, gambling, alcohol and woman, it's hard to believe Cis Farringdon is only fourteen. And that's because he isn't. Agatha, his mother, dropped five years from her true age – and his – when she married amiable magistrate Posket. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps." (National Theatre)
