The History Boys – July 2009

By Alan Bennet

Directed by Beverley Jackson-Hooper

Written by one of the UK’s best modern writers, The History Boys follows an unruly bunch of sharp, talented, witty British school-boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university.
A maverick English teacher and the young and shrewd supply teacher, with opposing viewpoints on education, engage in a battle to get the boys into Oxford and Cambridge Universities. With a headmaster obsessed with results, a history teacher who thinks he’s a fool and the anarchy of adolescence, this play raises questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.

It takes a tragic turn of events for the boys to recognise some of the lessons that they had been taught and to realize how those lessons would impact, not only their choices, but the rest of their lives.
