A major new revival of Terence Rattigan's classic family drama.
After being expelled from the Royal Navy College for stealing a five-shilling postal order, young cadet Ronnie Winslow's entire family are pulled apart by the repercussions. In Edwardian London, the Winslow family must fi ght to clear his name or face social ostracism as the case becomes a national scandal.
Based on a real-life event, The Winslow Boy is a courageous and often delicately humorous window into the class and political hypocrisy of the time. The REP's former Artistic Director, the Olivier Award-nominated Rachel Kavanaugh, returns to direct this gripping masterpiece that is engrossing for Rattigan lovers or new-comers alike.
Tessa Peake-Jones (Only Fools and Horses, Grantchester) stars as Grace Winslow wife of Arthur Winslow, played by Aden Gillett (House of Eliott, Holby City), the father who embarks on an extraordinary campaign for justice for his son.
