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 classic play, staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.

The History Boys premièred at the National in May 2004.

Review:

Brilliantly funny, with lines that we will, I hope, be quoting for years to come and several show-stopping vignettes. Bennett is still naughty, impish, endlessly ironic. But by the end tears are as near as laughter. The History Boys is moving, disquieting: one follows it with a heart brimful.... This is Bennett's first play this millennium, and it more than repays the wait; I think it his finest work in decades. Source: Financial Times

One of our most considerable as well as one of our most enjoyable playwrights. Source: Times Literary Supplement

What makes Bennett remarkable is a linguistic spark, an unerring sense for the right word. Source: Spectator
