What is currently on at Lyttelton (National Theatre) (V374)

The History Boys

The History BoysT1223699477
A comic drama about adolescent schoolboys. A group 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.
Author Alan Bennett
