Southwick Players Present
The History Boys by Alan Bennett.
History? Its just one ****ing thing after another.
Do you fancy revisiting your school days, with this phenomenally popular, multi-award winning play?
Set during the 1980s, in a boys Grammar School in the North of England, the play follows eight, bright, rambunctious, history pupils aiming for Oxbridge, under the guidance of three teachers with contrasting styles, closely monitored by an ambitious headmaster anxious to climb up the academic league table.
Beautifully written, Bennett explores the anarchy of adolescence and the methods and aims of education, providing a rich vein of comedy.
