Broadway fans are in for a rare treat. The Winslow Boy is one of the most revered plays, but this is the first time that it’s ever been revived on Broadway. The Winslow Boy is an English play written by Terence Rattigan, and it hasn’t been on the stage since 1947.
The play is based on an actual incident that happened at the Royal Naval College in Osborne. A 14-year-old boy gets expelled from the school and is accused of stealing a five-shilling postal order. The boy’s father, Arthur Winslow, compromises his health to clear the name of his son. The play centers on the question of what would you do to clear the name of your son.
The Broadway revival stars Tony award winner Roger Rees, Tony nominee Michael Cumpsty, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Alessandro Nivola and Charlotte Parry. It’s directed by Lindsay Posner.
The Winslow Boy will only be on the stage for a limited engagement running from October 17th through December 1st. See the play before it leaves the stage again! Get your theater tickets today.
