DETAILS: With his louche air and developed taste for smoking, gambling, port and women, it’s hard to believe Cis Farringdon (Joshua McGuire) is only fourteen. And that’s because he isn’t. Agatha his mother (Nancy Carroll) lopped five years from her true age and his when she married the amiable police magistrate Posket (John Lithgow).
The imminent arrival of Cis’ godfather sends Agatha incognito to the Hotel des Princes to warn him of her deception. But it’s also where her son has cajoled his otherwise staid stepfather into joining him for a binge. High-spirited carousing leads to a police raid and a night of outrageous mishap as the trapped guests make desperate attempts to conceal themselves from the law and from each other. Indignities escalate at court the next day where Posket must preside.

Dorothy wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.

James Graham’s biting, energetic and critically acclaimed new play strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes who roll up their sleeves, and on occasion bend the rules, to maneuver a diverse and conflicting chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments. It’s 1974 and the corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backbiting as Britain’s political parties battle to change the future of the nation, whatever it takes. In this hung parliament, the ruling party holds on by a thread as age–old traditions and allegiances are thrown aside in the struggle for power.
