The Winslow Boy

Terence Rattigan’s compelling drama of justice at any cost

Based on a true story, one of England’s greatest playwrights has devised this clever narrative about Arthur Winslow, desperate to exonerate his son of a wrongful conviction. With a passionate belief in justice of the highest order, no matter the personal cost, this journey pits the rights of the individual against the will of state. Truth under media scrutiny, though a tale as old as time, couldn’t be any more relevant today. The Winslow Boy is something you can understand in its archaic context, yet still relate to with its modern themes. ‘…follows all the precepts of a well-made play: it is well acted, well dressed and ought, by rights, to be well out-of-date, except that it presents the Edwardian equivalent of a media frenzy.’ - The Guardian. Best available Stalls seating.
