Programme Note #1: The Winslow Boy

JB wrote: “This play is based on a real court case which took place in 1910 – that of George Arthur Shee, a naval cadet, who becomes Ronnie Winslow in the play.

Ronnie is accused of stealing a postal order while at naval college and is expelled. His father is determined to prove Ronnie’s innocence and tries to engage barrister Sir Robert Morton to fight the Admiralty. The play shows the effects on the family and friends and brilliantly highlights the society, politics and attitudes of the time”
