The Magistrate: National Theatre Live
Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in this uproarious Victorian farce, with Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll (After the Dance) as his wife Agatha. Direction comes from Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, London).
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.
In a similar vein to the National Theatre’s smash-hit comedies, She Stoops to Conquer, London Assurance and One Man, Two Guvnors, The Magistrate is sure to have audiences around the world doubled up with laughter.
This is a National Theatre Live screening.
National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking initiative to broadcast the best of British theatre to cinemas around the world. Broadcasts will also feature interviews with artists and behind-the-scenes footage, allowing audiences to share in the acclaimed work the National Theatre produces.
