Based on the real-life court case of a young naval cadet unjustly accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order and first staged in 1946, The Winslow Boy has been revived many times since, including at The Old Vic in 2013.
Ronnie Winslow is expelled from naval college, having been accused of petty theft. Enraged, his father Arthur engages a lawyer to challenge the Admiralty to prove the charges in court – but public opinion is very much against the Winslows, and each member of the family is suffering…
This edition includes an authoritative introduction by Dan Rebellato, a biographical sketch and a chronology.
'A sterling example of Rattigan's dramatic skill and humanity… deeply poignant' Telegraph
'A playwright of acute emotional intelligence, elegant wit, and an extraordinary gift for expressive construction… thrilling' Independent
