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 screenplay, staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.
Fox Searchlight Pictures, DNA and the BBC have joined forces to bring the National Theatre's award-winning production of The History Boys to the big screen, directed by Nicholas Hytner from a script adapted for the screen by Alan Bennett.Biografía del autor:
Alan Bennett has been one of our leading dramatists since the success of Beyond the Fringe in the 1960s. His television series Talking Heads has become a modern-day classic, as have many of his works for the stage including Forty Years On, The Lady in the Van, A Question of Attribution, The Madness of George III (together with the Oscar-nominated screenplay The Madness of King George), and an adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. The History Boys won Evening Standard and Critics' Circle awards for Best Play, an Olivier award for Best New Play and the South Bank Award. His latest collection of prose, Untold Stories, is published by Faber and Faber and Profile Books.
