The Winslow Boy


The Old Vic in London has brought some thrilling productions to New York, including last year’s Richard III at BAM, starring Kevin Spacey—who is also the Old Vic’s artistic director. Now they’re teaming up with Roundabout Theatre Company for a revival of Terence Rattigan’s 1946 drama The Winslow Boy. Set before the start of WWI, the play is based on the true story of a cadet kicked out of naval college for stealing, and his father’s fight to prove his son’s innocence and save the family’s honor in a strict, unforgiving society. Lindsay Posner, who staged the acclaimed production in London earlier this year, directs a cast including Michael Cumpsty, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Alessandro Nivola, and Tony winner Roger Rees.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 20. Continues through Dec. 1, 2013
