The Winslow Boy

A drama by Terrence Rattigan

Directed by Tom Mackan
Produced by Michelle Spanik

It is 1912 in England. The government strains to introduce far-reaching social legislation to heavy opposition, women struggle for the basic right to vote, Ireland’s revolutionary fuse burns menacingly, the German war mongerers rattle their sabres, and Ronnie Winslow, just 14, a cadet at the Royal Naval College, Osborne, in 1912, is accused by his superiors of stealing a five shilling postal order and is sent home in disgrace. The Winslows are so ordinary a British family, you look up ordinary in the dictionary, there they are. But in the common ordinariness of their father, Arthur Winslow, burning like a pilot light, a sense of justice abides. Stirred, he begins a journey to see that wrong is righted, a journey that almost ruins his family and his health, and eventually leads him to face choices he never dreamt would arise.  Terence Rattigan bases his story on a real event of that period. He reconstitutes the tale but the essential facts remain: A government is brought almost to a standstill, a whole nation is transfixed, and the Crown itself is brought to trial. And all is told as a simple story of an ordinary family doing what ordinary families do in the face of dramatic conflicts… live their lives and trust that right will be done. This play, written in 1946,   is considered by many to be one of centuries finest achievements by an extraordinarily skilled writer.  Burlington Little Theatre is proud to be giving it its area premier.
