The Winslow Boy
by Terence Rattigan
Directed by Steven Woolf
February 11 - March 8
Mary Ranken Jordan and Ettie A. Jordan Charitable Foundation
When young Ronnie Winslow is expelled from military school for stealing a five-shilling postal order, his father wages an exhaustive fight to clear his son’s name. What begins as a private matter quickly becomes a larger question of the rights of the individual against the power of the state. Though the legal battle jeopardizes his health and the reputation of the entire family, Arthur Winslow is determined that right will prevail, no matter what the sacrifice.
Based on true events, this stirring and moving drama tells the story of how far one man will go for justice.
