'The History Boys'

 by Alan Bennett

Set in the early 1980s, 'The History Boys' follows a group of 8 history pupils preparing for the Oxford and Cambridge entrance examinations under the guidance of three teachers (Hector, Irwin, and Lintott) with contrasting styles. A battle between culture and arts, 'The History Boys' shows that education shapes the people we become.
