About The History Boys
Australia’s much-loved veteran actor John Wood stars in Alan Bennett’s brilliantly funny play, The History Boys.
This sell-out production plays for a strictly limited season at the Sydney Opera House.
The History Boys follows an unruly bunch of boys in pursuit of sex, sport, and a place at a good university – generally in that order.
With gentle wit and pitch-perfect command of character, Alan Bennett evokes that special period of the final year of high school, while raising questions about the notion of history and how it is taught – as well as the purpose of education all together.
The History Boys stunned audiences when it premiered in London in 2004, and swept up a plethora of awards.
- Tony Award for Best Play
- Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play
- Evening Standard Award for Best Play
- Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play
- New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play - Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Broadway Play
This production features an all-star cast including Australian theatre heavyweights John Wood, Heather Mitchell and Paul Goddard.
