Information

Voted the nation’s favourite play, Alan Bennett’s multi award-winning The History Boys arrives at the Lyceum this May.

Winner of over 30 theatre awards including Olivier, Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle, South Bank Show, New York Drama Critics’ Circle and Tony Awards for Best New Play, Alan Bennett’s masterpiece was voted the nation’s favourite play in a recent national survey.

Set in the 1980s, The History Boys is a comic drama about adolescent schoolboys. An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-formers 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.

Staffroom rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.

Presented in a brand new touring production from the producers of Avenue Q UK Tour, Spring Awakening UK Tour and Seussical, West End - this hilarious national treasure hits all the right spots for a good night out.

‘Pass it on boys… that’s the game I wanted you to learn… pass it on’
