The Magistrate archiveFirst performed in the 1880s. Agatha's son Cis is an extraordinarily precocious boy for his mere fourteen years. He is a 'regular young card'. Only Agatha knows that Cis is actually nineteen years old, having lied about her own age when she married her second husband, the good-hearted and honest magistrate, Mr Poskett.<br>When Cis' godfather returns from Bengal the cat looks certain to escape the bag. Panic ensues and she escapes to plot with her sister. Meanwhile, Cis has persuaded Mr Poskett to accompany him for drinks. Whilst each becomes embroiled in their own private world of deception, a whole trunk of tricks and surprises start to brew, on which the cover must eventually blow. 'Time' is called on the preposterous proceedings but not before total chaos reigns supreme
