"Four stars. Roundabout has struck gold!" —Jeremy Gerard, Bloomberg News
 
Roundabout Theatre Company presents The Old Vic Production of The Winslow Boy.
 
Tony Award® nominee Michael Cumpsty (End of the Rainbow), Tony Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (Man of La Mancha), Alessandro Nivola (A Month in the Country) and Tony Award winner Roger Rees (The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby) star in Terence Rattigan’s classic The Winslow Boy, returning to Broadway for the first time in over 60 years. Lindsay Posner (the West End’s Noises Off and Carousel) directs this captivating new production from The Old Vic in London.
 
When Ronnie Winslow is expelled from school for stealing, it has a resounding effect on the entire family. His father Arthur must pool his resources to hire a lawyer for the boy’s defense. His brother Dickie begrudgingly drops out of college and gets a banking job to help with the legal costs. And the fallout from this unexpected predicament puts his sister Catherine's engagement in jeopardy. Though they are determined to defend Ronnie, will the family’s sacrifices be enough to clear his reputation and the Winslow name?
 
A moving exploration of family devotion, The Winslow Boy beautifully illustrates the costs of unconditional love and the rewards that make the effort priceless.
