by Terence Rattigan, directed by Rachel Kavanaugh

The Winslow Boy

The Winslow Boy


Direct from seasons at Chichester Festival Theatre and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, a major new revival of Rattigan’s classic family drama comes to Bath.

Having been expelled from the Royal Navy College for stealing a fi ve-shilling postal order, young cadet Ronnie Winslow’s entire family are pulled apart by the repercussions of this charge. Set against the values of 1910 Edwardian London, the Winslow family fi ght to clear his name or face social ostracism as the case becomes a national scandal.

Based on a real-life event, The Winslow Boy is a courageous and often delicately humorous window into the class and political hypocrisy of the time.

This highly-charged moral drama will have audiences gripped by the heart-tugging decisions facing each member of the Winslow family. Where will their sacrifi ces leave them and what is really at stake?

Tessa Peake-Jones is known for her fifteen-year long role as Raquel in Only Fools and Horses. Numerous other television credits include Grantchester, Poppy Shakespeare and The Bell.

Aden Gillett is best known for playing Jack Maddox in The House of Eliott. His many West End credits includes Blithe Spirit, Benefactors and he played George Banks in Mary Poppins. He starred in many productions for the Peter Hall Company in Bath including Design for Living and Betrayal.

The show is directed by Olivier Award nominated Rachel Kavanaugh whose recent credits include the West End production of Half A Sixpence and the forthcoming production of A Christmas Carol for the Royal Shakespeare Company.
