Casting is complete for Roundabout Theatre Company’s fall revival of The Winslow Boy, starring Tony winner Roger Rees. Directed by Lindsay Posner, The Winslow Boy begins previews on September 20 and opens for a limited run from October 17 through December 1 at the American Airlines Theatre.
Penned by Terence Rattigan, The Winslow Boy stars Rees as a father who fights to clear his son’s name after the 14-year-old is expelled from the Royal Naval College for allegedly stealing a five-shilling postal order. In addition to Rees, the cast will feature Charlotte Parry as Catherine Winslow, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Grace Winslow, Michael Cumpsty as Desmond Curry and Alessandro Nivola as Sir Robert Morton.
Rounding out the ensemble for The Winslow Boy will be Zachary Booth as Dickie Winslow, Spencer Davis Milford as Ronnie Winslow, Chandler Williams as John Watherstone, Meredith Forlenza as Miss Barnes, Stephen Pilkington as Fred and Henry Russell as Violet.
Parry played Cecily in Roundabout's Broadway revival of The Importance of Being Earnest and has appeared on Broadway in Coram Boy and The Real Thing. Her many off-Broadway credits include Equivocation, Look Back in Anger, Howard Katz, The Master Builder and Rainbow Kiss. Parry was a cast member in the inaugural year of Sam Mendez's Bridge Project productions of The Cherry Orchard and The Winter's Tale.
