Meet a bunch of bright, funny, unruly sixth form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at Oxbridge.

This is a special notice 1...something that may be of interest to an audience

Alan Bennett’s The History Boys has played to critical acclaim throughout the world. It raises serious questions about the purpose of education and how history should be taught, but, via the character of the maverick teacher, Hector, it is full of Bennett’s intrinsic humanity. Above all, it is magnificently entertaining with its unforgettable one-liners and show-stopping vignettes.

Tickets: £9.75
