By Terence Rattigan
Directed by Jennifer Willison
It is a few years prior to the First World War and fourteenyear-
old Ronnie Winslow has just been expelled from naval
college, accused of the theft of a postal order.
The boy remains adamant that he is innocent. Enraged, his
father Arthur, engages a leading lawyer, Sir Robert Morton,
to challenge the Admiralty to prove the charges in court.
As Arthur attempts to clear his son’s name, even in the
face of public opposition and weakening resolve, each
member of the Winslow family suffers as the case slowly
unfolds, including Ronnie’s suffragette sister, Catherine, who
sacrifices her own happiness and ambition in the pursuit of
justice for her brother.
