The History Boys
King's Theatre, Edinburgh
Starring Joshua Mayes-Cooper, Kedar Williams-Stirling and Steven Roberts.
Winner of over 30 major awards including the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best New Play, Alan Bennett’s comic masterpiece was voted the nations favourite play in a recent national survey.
Set in the 1980s, The History Boys is the story of a group of bright, funny and unruly sixth-formers in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. Their maverick English teacher is at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher, whilst their headmaster is obsessed with results and league tables. Their A Levels may be over, but their true education is only just beginning.
From the team who brought us Avenue Q last spring, The History Boys is a hilariously funny and exceptionally moving play about the true purpose of education. This national treasure has proved to be the perfect night at the theatre.
