History Boys Show Image
An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university…
A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher…
A headmaster obsessed with results and a history teacher who thinks he’s a fool…
In Alan Bennett’s remarkable play, staffroom rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.
Winner of three Olivier Awards, five Drama Desk Awards, and a record-breaking six wins out of seven nominations at the 2006 Tony Awards, The History Boys comes to Dublin after sell-out tours of the West End and Broadway.
Contains strong language.
"It is surely the richest play Bennett has ever written. Wonderfully it blends wit and wisdom, with knockout humour and pain."
Financial Times
