An unruly bunch of bright, funny boys in their final year at a British
boarding school are (as such boys will be) in pursuit of sex, sport,
and a place at a good university — generally in that order.
In all their efforts, they are helped and hindered, enlightened and
bemused, by a maverick English teacher who seeks to broaden their
horizons in sometimes undefined ways, and by a young history teacher
who questions the methods, as well as the aim, of their schooling.
In this Tony Award, Olivier Award, and Drama Desk Award-winning
comedic drama, playwright Alan Bennett (with gentle wit and pitch-perfect
command of character) raises not only universal questions about the
nature of history and how it is taught but also questions about the
purpose of education today.
