Auditions - The Winslow Boy

‘The Winslow Boy’

Auditions for ‘The Winslow Boy’ are taking place on Wednesday 7 February, 5pm-7pm and Thursday 8 February 5pm-7pm

meeting both days outside the Koan at 4.45pm.

Recalls will be scheduled for Friday 9th February at a time to be certified at auditions.

‘The Winslow Boy’ by Terence Rattigan is set in early 20th Century Britain, spanning the course of 2 years.

Young Ronnie Winslow, accused of theft, is expelled from the Royal Naval College at Osborne.

Rattigan's play follows the father's determination to clear his son's name and protect his family's honour.

‘An injustice has been done. I am going to set it right, and there is no sacrifice in the world I am not prepared to make in order to do so.’

The play is based on an actual law case from 1908. It moved Rattigan so deeply that he felt it necessary to write a play with the case at its focus.

Touching, humorous and inspirational, this play will appeal to all. There are ten parts of equal sizes and of varied ages. We are looking to cast both men and women.

The characters are sensitive yet witty, fantastic parts to play and an opportunity not to be missed.

If you have any questions email Genevieve, the Director, at g.m.raghu@warwick.ac.uk We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday or Thursday!
