The History Boys, winner of over 30 theatre awards including New York Drama Critics’ Circle and Tony Awards for Best New Play, opens at Woolfe Street Playhouse on February 27.
Set in the 1980s, The History Boys is a comic drama about adolescent schoolboys. An unruly bunch of bright young men 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.
Staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose. The History Boys features Theatre Charleston Award winning actors Robin Burke and Lynda Harvey and a powerhouse ensemble cast.
