There are plenty of places to eat in old town, but it usually takes 20 - 30 minutes to get a table. If you plan to eat down there, arrive at least 2 hours early.

Everything that needed to be said, has been said. My two stars speaks for itself. BTW to Buglake's comment, "...so as could be expected, the audience was... elderly, we'll say. During some of the lulls in the action on stage, I noted several...continued

BRAVO! ! ! ! After reading the earlier local reviews on here I nearly passed on seeing this. But I am SO glad that I didn't listen. It strikes me as odd that none of our local reviewers mentioned the underlying theme of homo-eroticism and sexual...continued

It is extremely rare that I write a negative review of a show. However, this show was worse than bad - a real DOG. British humor - ug! The theatre was good, nice location for an evening dinner and then walk to the show - but the writing and the...continued

Description

The History Boys

by Alan Bennett

Directed by Sean Murray

The 2006 Tony Award for Best Play went to this comedy/drama about a bunch of bright, funny boys in a British boarding school who are, as such boys will be, in pursuit of sex, sport, and acceptance at a good university–generally in that order.

In their efforts, they are helped by a maverick history teacher who seeks to broaden their horizons in sometimes unorthodox ways, and by a young teacher who questions the methods, as well as the aim, of their schooling. Alan Bennett raises, with gentle wit, universal questions about the nature of history, how it is taught and questions the purpose of education today.
