Henry Goodman

The Winslow Boy

Terence Rattigan

Terence Rattigan’s compelling drama The Winslow Boy comes to The Old Vic stage following the success of Cause Célèbre.

Driven by a passionate belief in justice whatever the personal cost, Arthur Winslow sets out to prove his son’s innocence when he is accused of theft. This moving story puts the rights of the individual against the will of the stage. A fight for truth, played out under the media spotlight, tests one family to its very limit.

Terence Rattigan is one of England’s greatest playwrights. His many plays include French Without Tears, After the Dance, Flare Path, The Browning Version, The Deep Blue Sea, Man and Boy and Cause Célèbre.

Directed by Olivier Award-winner Lindsay Posner whose credits include Noises Off (The Old Vic, West End and UK tour) Abigail’s Party, A View from the Bridge, Butley and Carousel (West End).
