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; a history teacher who thinks he’s a fool.
In Alan Bennett’s blockbuster play, staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.
A reprise of the 2012 sell out performances.
RedTIE Theatre embarks on its most audacious play yet. Unmissable.
RedTIE first performed the History Boys in September 2012. To read the IWCP review click here.
