The Winslow Boy
A major new revival of Terence Rattigan's classic family drama.
“An injustice has been done. I am going to set it right, and there is no sacrifice in the world I am not prepared to make in order to do so.” Arthur Winslow
Having been expelled from the Royal Naval College for stealing, young cadet Ronnie Winslow's entire family are pulled apart by the repercussions of his charge.
As they fight to clear his name in the face of a growing national scandal, the family are confronted with political hypocrisies and forced into life-changing decisions.
What sacrifices must be made in the pursuit of truth and how far will a family go to clear their name?
Based on a real-life event, The Winslow Boy is a courageous and compelling tale of honesty and honour.
Tessa Peake-Jones, the familiar face of Raquel in Only Fools and Horses, stars as Grace Winslow, and Aden Gillett (House of Eliott, Holby City) takes the role of Arthur Winslow, the father who embarks on an extraordinary campaign for justice for his son.
They are joined by Timothy Watson, best known for his role as the villainous Rob Titchener in The Archers, as sought after barrister Sir Robert Morton who comes to the defence of Navel Cadet Ronnie Winslow, played by Misha Butler, who makes his stage debut in this production.
The show is directed by The REP's former Artistic Director, the Olivier Award nominated Rachel Kavanaugh whose recent credits include the West End production of Half A Sixpence and the recent production of A Christmas Carol for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Fresh and timely. In the hands of this talented company and director, it still packs a punch and has stacks of important things to say to a 21st century Britain...An impeccable, perfectly judged whole
Superb… Still resonates today
The Reviews Hub
Gripping... Intelligent... Thrilling... Timely in its feminism
Sensitively and intelligently played
A beautifully polished production. There is nothing more certain to prick a tear from an audience than a fight for justice’
A thought-provoking and entertaining evening
This is another triumphant Rattigan. I'm already looking forward to the next one
Profound... We’re left to contemplate the looming fight for political rights, as much as we are the incipient Great War. Timely.
Rattigan's best work
