The History Boys



An unruly bunch of bright, funny boys in a British Grammar school are 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 2006 Tony Award Winner, The History Boys raises not only universal questions about the nature of history and how it is taught but also questions about the purpose of education today.

Performing February 4th-March 5th 2017 at The Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago!
