The History Boys A play by Alan Bennett, Directed by Helen Ellis

By special arrangement with Origin Theatrical Pty Ltd

The History Boys is set in the fictional Cutlers' Grammar School in the nineteen-eighties. In this award-winning play, Alan Bennett evokes the special time that the "sixth form" represents in an English boy's life. In doing so, he not only raises universal questions about history and how it is taught, but also questions more generally the purpose of education today. "A play of depth as well as dazzle, intensely moving as well as thought-provoking and funny." ―The Daily Telegraph (London). Following a sold out run in London, The History Boys premiered on Broadway in April 2006 taking the Tony Award as Best Play of the Season.
