WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Winner of the 2006 Tony Award for Best Play, The History Boys swept all of the Britain's West End awards and spawned a feature film. A sort of pop-culture phenomenon, The History Boys is an irreverent look at the structure and value of education. Set in a British boy's school around 1980, the play follows a group of eight sixth-form (senior) lads as they are groomed by their teachers for their examinations for Oxford and Cambridge, Britain's finest universities. They are being led by two distinctly different teachers; one an older maverick teacher whose mission is to broaden the boy's horizons in sometime undefined directions and a younger teacher who questions both the old teaching methods as well as the aim of the student's education altogether.
