Following acclaimed productions of The King’s Speech and Single Spies, the same creative team bring you a major new revival of Terence Rattigan’s classic family drama. The Winslow Boy comes to Cambridge direct from the Chichester Festival Theatre and Birmingham Repertory Theatre and is directed by Olivier Award nominated Rachel Kavanaugh.
Having been 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 of this charge. Set against the values of 1910 Edwardian London, the Winslow family fight 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.
A gripping masterpiece that is engrossing for Rattigan lovers or newcomers 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. The Winslow Boy also stars Timothy Watson, who is best known for the role of Rob Titchener in BBC Radio 4’s The Archers.
