About This Show

Set during the 1980s in northern England, Alan Bennett’s play is a hilarious and provocative piece about the anarchy of adolescence and the purpose of education — specifically, how history should be taught.

The recipient of more than 30 major awards, including Tony and Olivier awards for Best New Play, The History Boys follows a rambunctious group of clever young men as they pursue higher learning, games, sexual identity and a place at university under the guidance of three wildly different teachers and a headmaster obsessed with results.
