Terence Rattigan's compelling drama comes to the Genesian stage following its recent Broadway and West End revivals.

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. A fight for truth, played out under the media spotlight, tests one family to its very limit. Don't miss this moving and uplifting classic.

"Like some forgotten treasure found in the attic, the Old Vic's radiant revival of The Winslow Boy - now presented on Broadway by the Roundabout Theater - practically glows in the dark. Terence Rattigan based his 1946 drama on the actual experience of an upper-middle-class family whose legal defense of a son's honor became a cause celebre when its brief against the English political establishment was debated in London's High Court. A top-drawer ensemble do the honors in this tense legal drama, which Rattigan has shrewdly taken out of the courtroom and into the drawing room." VARIETY
