OUR NEXT PRODUCTION

27th September – 5th October 2024 at 7:45pm

By Terence Rattigan
Directed by Jan Palmer Sayer

Inspired by an actual event, Rattigan’s hit 1946 play concerns a father's desperate efforts to clear his son's name when the boy is expelled from the Royal Naval College for allegedly stealing a five-shilling postal order.

Cadet Ronnie Winslow is expelled from the Royal Naval College accused of stealing. His father, Arthur, refusing to believe his guilt and dissatisfied with the manner in which the investigation was conducted, demands a new inquiry and fights tirelessly for his son’s honour. Following an independent inquiry, the matter is taken to the House of Commons, but Arthur destroys his health and finances in the process.
