5.0 out of 5 stars Really funny, subtle and intensely moving., 1 Dec 2004
This review is from: The History Boys (Paperback)
The play is about eight sixth-form students who are applying to oxbridge, and the teachers that help them through it. As with all plays I fully recommend seeing the (excellent) production which premiered at the National Theatre in May 2004 with Richard Griffiths as Hector.
By reading the play one discovers the questions that dictate our lives and do not appear in our education system today. Questions which really make you think about the point of literature, art, education, music and history.
Just great to read, but the jokes are much more apparent on the stage.
