"Lindsay Posner directs a beautifully judged, elegantly designed and splendidly acted production of Terence Rattigan's The Winslow Boy, says Charles Spencer." The Telegraph More
"The excitable maid bursts in on the family whose son Ronnie has been wrongly accused of stealing a postal order. The newspaper, she says, calls the Commons debate about their case “a shocking waste of the government’s time — but a good thing because it could only happen in England”. That sense of legal absurdity in the cause of individual justice sums up why Terence Rattigan’s play, based on a 1908 case, is a perennial favourite." The Times More
"The case for Terence Rattigan has been steadily made over the past decade, and this revival of his 1946 play is only likely to advance the cause. But two things make Lindsay Posner's production notable: what it reveals about popular attitudes towards the press, and a star performance by Henry Goodman."
