An unruly bunch of bright, funny boys in boarding school are in pursuit of sex, sport and a spot at a good university -- in that order. In all their efforts, the lads are mentored 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. Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for Best Play, The History Boys explores the anarchy of adolescence and provokes questions about the true purpose of education. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, this acclaimed comic drama by U.K. playwright Alan Bennett can be enjoyed at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago.
