The Winslow Boy

Closed December 1, 2013

The manner in which Rattigan embodies resonant themes in characters who never give showy, dramatic speeches, or even let on that their hearts are bleeding and their minds are clouded with doubt, touches a deep chord.

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Why See The Winslow Boy?

A fight for truth, played out under the media spotlight, tests one family to its very limit when Terence Rattigan's compelling drama The Winslow Boy comes to New York, following a successful run on the West End.

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. Starring stage legends Roger Rees and Tony-nominee Michael Cumpsty, this moving story pits the rights of the individual against the will of the state.

This production by London's The Old Vic is directed by Lindsay Posner, who also directed the West End production.
