The History Boys by Alan Bennett

August 17 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Mad Cow Theatre

54 West Church Street
Alan Bennett’s brilliantly witty, perceptive tale is of an unruly handful of senior schoolboys, preparing for coveted places at either Oxford or Cambridge under the tutelage of their somewhat “old-school” history teacher. An unusual approach to their studies is questioned when a new young history teacher joins the staff with strong views of his own. The History Boys is a compelling exploration of both the anarchy of adolescence and the very purpose of education itself, but it’s also a wonderful feel-good evening, shot through with Alan Bennett’s masterful wit and abundant humanity – quite simply a must-see. Find out more
