Olivier Award-winner Henry Goodman will star as Arthur Winslow in the Old Vic's forthcoming revival of Terence Rattigan's The Winslow Boy, which opens on 19 March 2013 (previews from 8 March).

Directed by Lindsay Posner, the 1946 play is based on the true story of a father's fight to clear his son's name when he is expelled from Naval College after being convicted of theft.

Goodman's recent credits include playing the title role in the Whatsonstage.com Award-nominated The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui at Chichester, while he's has previously appeared on the London stage in Yes, Prime Minister, Duet for One, Chicago, Fiddler on the Roof, Art and Follies.

Posner returns to the Old Vic following his acclaimed revival of Noises Off, which subsequently transferred to the West End and will tour the UK from March. His other recent credits include Uncle Vanya (Vaudeville), Butley (Duchess), House of Games (Almeida), A View From the Bridge (Duke of York's) and Carousel (Savoy).

Designed by Peter McKintosh, further casting is still to be confirmed.

Following The Winslow Boy, as previously reported, Kim Cattrall stars in Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth directed by Marianne Elliott, which opens on 12 June (previews from 1 June).
