Sell A Door Theatre presents

At the New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham
Monday 23 to Saturday 28 February 2015

Voted the nation’s favourite play, Alan Bennett’s multi award-winning The History Boys will return in 2015, visiting Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre from Monday 23 to Saturday 28 February 2015 as part of a major new UK tour for 2015. On sale now.

Winner of over 30 major awards including the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best New Play, The History Boys is the story of a group of bright, funny and unruly sixth-formers in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. Their maverick English teacher is at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher, whilst their headmaster is obsessed with results and league tables. Staffroom rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence overflow, provoking insistent questions about history and how you teach it. Their A Levels may be over, but their true education is only just beginning. Widely hailed as on of the greatest theatrical events of the last decade, The History Boys is a hilariously funny and exceptionally moving play about the true purpose of education.

This brand new production for 2015 is presented by Sell a Door Theatre, whose recent productions include Avenue Q (2014 UK Tour), Spring Awakening (2011 UK Tour) and Seussical (West End).
