An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys 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; a history teacher who thinks he's a fool.
In Alan Bennett's new play, 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 premiered at the National in May 2004.
