Description - The History Boys by Alan Bennett

In Alan Bennett's new play, staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose. An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results; a history teacher who thinks he's a fool.
