The Winslow Boy is a play about the struggles of a well placed family in the early part of the 20th century to prove the innocence of the teenage son from a charge of theft which sees him discharged from his naval college and the potential shaming of his family. His Father places his families reputation and finances at risk to back his son's claim of innoncence to the point where the case becomes the talk of the nation by being discussed and argued in the House of Commons. The plot is based on a true case and has held audiences for many years over the ever present arguement of "the truth will out".
