Winner of the 'Laurence Olivier Award For Best New Play' (2005) and the 'Tony Award for Best Play' (2006), The History Boys centres around 8 teenage boys attending Cutler's Grammar School, Sheffield U.K.
Set in the early 1980's the play follows these eight history students preparing for their entrance exams to Oxford and Cambridge and their relationships with each other and the teachers that are in charge of their education in and out of school.
