Lindsay Posner returns to the Old Vic theatre to direct Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy.

Based on the true story of a father’s fight to clear his son’s name when he is expelled from Naval College and convicted of theft, The Winslow Boy is a timely tale about the battle between personal principles and an impenetrable establishment under the media spotlight.

Posner, who recently directed Ken Stott, Anna Friel, Samuel West and Laura Carmichael in Uncle Vanya, has enjoyed an extensive career in the West End having directed productions including Noises Off, Abigail’s Party, Death And The Maiden and Butley.
