A major new revival of Terence Rattigan’s astonishingly involving classic family drama comes to Oxford Playhouse with Tessa Peake-Jones and Aden Gillett.

Having been expelled from the Royal Naval College for stealing a five-shilling postal order, young cadet Ronnie Winslow’s entire family are pulled apart by the repercussions of this charge. Set against the principled English values of Edwardian London, the Winslow family fight 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 delicately humorous window into the class and political hypocrisy of the time.

Tessa Peake-Jones (Only Fools and Horses, Grantchester) stars as Grace Winslow, wife of Arthur Winslow, played by Aden Gillett (House of Eliott, Holby City), the father who embarks on an extraordinary campaign for justice for his son.
