The Winslow Boy Tickets
Old Vic Theatre, London
Lindsay Posner directs Terence Rattigan’s compelling play, The Winslow Boy, based on a true story of a father’s fight to clear his son’s name when he is expelled after being convicted of theft.
First staged in 1946, the battle between personal principles and conscience plus an impenetrable establishment under the media spotlight makes The Winslow Boy as relevant today as it was then.
Starring award-winning actor Henry Goodman who most recently played the role of Arturo Ui in The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui (Chichester Festival Theatre). His other theatre credits include Yes, Prime Minister (Chichester Festival Theatre and West End), Copenhagen (Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield), Duet for One (Almeida and West End).
