    Father May Not Know Best

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    October 17, 2013: Much patience is demanded from the family of Arthur Winslow, the British patriarch waging a long battle to see that justice is properly served in “The Winslow Boy,” the 1946 play by Terence Rattigan that is being splendidly revived by the Roundabout Theater Company at the American Airlines Theater.

    Review: 'The Winslow Boy' _ Tonic for the Stubborn

    MARK KENNEDY

    October 17, 2013: So many things onstage these days champion the notion that change is good — open your mind, learn to love what you fear, embrace the unknown. So it's refreshing to have something that cheers the hopelessly stubborn.

    The Winslow Boy: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    October 17, 2013: While Terence Rattigan’s plays gathered dust for decades after being swept aside by the kitchen-sink realists of the 1950s and ‘60s, the old-fashioned structural virtues and tremulously submerged depth of feeling in the British dramatist’s work have drawn renewed appreciation in recent years. Fresh fuel for that rediscovery is supplied in Lindsay Posner’s affecting revival of The Winslow Boy. The 1946 drama follows a father’s tenacious quest to prove the innocence of his 14-year-old son, a Royal Navy cadet accused of theft. But as is often the case with Rattigan, plot becomes secondary to passions cloaked in upper middle-class reserve.

    'The Winslow Boy' review: Exquisite revival

    Linda Winer

    October 17, 2013: The 1912 West London case against 13-year-old Ronnie Winslow seems far too trivial to drain two years and much of the limited family money in his defense. Accused of stealing a pittance, the boy is expelled from military academy. The father persists, to the point of obsession, to attempt to get honor restored. And yet the effort, for all its absurd disruptions, has a surprising sense of triumphal magnificence.

    Review: Blood Runs Thicker Than Water in "The Winslow Boy"

    Robert Kahn

    October 17, 2013: How far would you go for family? That’s the deceptively complex question posed by “The Winslow Boy,” a satisfying, very British drama from the Roundabout Theatre Co. now open at the American Airlines Theatre. In the case of the Winslows, an upper-class clan living in London’s Kensington district, the answer is: you go until it hurts, and then you go some more.
