Wimborne Drama Productions present

The Winslow Boy

By Terence Rattigan

 

Based on a real-life event that took place just before the First World War, The Winslow Boy by Terence Rattigan is a gripping and moving family drama.

When 14-year-old naval cadet Ronnie Winslow is expelled from the Royal Naval College at Osborne for allegedly stealing a five-shilling postal order, his family are pulled apart by the repercussions of this charge, as they fight to clear his name or face social ostracism as the case becomes a national scandal. Driven by the father’s passionate belief in justice whatever the personal cost, the family battle for the truth, played out under the media spotlight, testing themselves to their very limit.

This production is being staged by Wimborne Drama Productions by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD., and is directed by David Pile.

Terence Rattigan (1911 – 1977) is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century, a supreme theatrical craftsman and a master at showing the deep emotion that often hides behind the stiff upper lip of his characters. His many plays include French Without Tears, After the Dance, Flare Path, The Browning Version, The Deep Blue Sea, Separate Tables and Cause Célèbre.
