The first-ever Broadway revival of Terence Rattigan’s 1947 classic The Winslow Boy, starring Tony winner Roger Rees, begins performances on September 20 at the American Airlines Theatre. Presented by the Roundabout Theatre Company, the play opens for a limited engagement on October 17 and will run through December 1.
Directed by Lindsay Posner, The Winslow Boy asks the question: How far would you go to clear the name of someone you love? Rees stars as a father who fights to validate his son’s name after the 14-year-old is expelled from the Royal Naval College for allegedly stealing a five-shilling postal order. Arthur Winslow will stop at nothing to ensure that his family’s legacy lasts, even if it means compromising his own health in his quest for justice.
Rees stars alongside Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Charlotte Parry, Michael Cumpsty and Alessandro Nivola. The ensemble includes Zachary Booth, Spencer Davis Milford, Chandler Williams, Meredith Forlenza, Stephen Pilkington and Henry Russell.
The creative team for The Winslow Boy includes scenic and costume design by Peter McKintosh, lighting design by David Lander and sound design by Drew Levy.
