In Terence Rattigan’s play The Winslow Boy, the most famous barrister of the day is engaged to clear the name of 14-year old Ronnie Winslow, accused of the theft of a five-shilling postal order. The stain on young Winslow’s character is lifted – but at some cost to his family.
With the Jackson reforms in place, Obiter thinks there needs to be a better way to sort this out. To win two tickets to see the Old Vic’s revival of this play, we’d like readers to advise on the best way to fund this case with minimum strain on the Winslows’ health and wealth. Brief suggestions by 15 April to firstname.lastname@example.org.
