With his louche air and a developed taste for smoking, gambling, alcohol and women, 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.
NTLive showed a short interview with John Lithgow during their previous broadcast, Timon of Athens. He revealed he has previously only seen one NTLive broadcast - Hamlet starring Rory Kinnear - but is very enthusiastic about the concept and looking forward to the extra challenges of broadcast night.
