History Boys

By Alan Bennett

“Pass it on boys, thats the game I wanted you to play, pass it on.”

A bunch of unruly and bright sixth formers.  A maverick English teacher and a fresh faced supply teacher.  A Headmaster obsessed with the league tables and the history teacher who thinks he’s an idiot.

In Alan Bennett’s award winning play, sex and sport play just as much a part in these teenagers’ lives as historical fact and poetry.  But will the teachers be able to put aside their own squabbles to help their students navigate the anarchy of adolescence.

In this hilariously thought-provoking play we question the purpose of education and the value of history.
