Michaelmas Week 1
Think Charm. Think Polish. Think Renaissance Man.
The tactless and ambitious headmaster of Cutler's Grammar School has high hopes for his latest Oxbridge applicants. Supply teacher Irwin is to teach the boys some style in the hopes of climbing the league tables by gaining places for the eight History Boys.
Hector, their enigmatic "General Studies" teacher, seeks to prepare them for more than an entrance exam - life. Meanwhile he cannot refrain from getting too close to the boys he guides.
"Pass it on, boys. That's the game I wanted you to learn. Pass it on"
CUADC brings you Alan Bennett's multi-award winning masterpiece for the first time on the ADC stage. Hilarious and moving, The History Boys forces us to ask questions about education, truth, history and whether Oxbridge really is that important.
