The Winslow BoyA major new revival of Terence Rattigan’s classic family drama comes to the Grand Opera House.
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.
Based on a real-life event, The Winslow Boy is a delicately humorous window into the class and political hypocrisy of the time.
From the producers of the critically acclaimed The King’s Speech and Single Spies, The Winslow Boy is directed by Olivier Award nominated Rachel Kavanaugh.
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. Also starring Timothy Watson, who is best known for the role of Rob Titchener in BBC Radio 4’s The Archers.
