Ben Brantley, New York times
Alan Bennett's witty play, which takes place in a British boy's grammar school rife with adolescent anarchy and faculty rivalry, examines the nature of education and how history really happens.
A rambunctious group of smart and funny sixth-form boys are in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A headmaster is obsessed with results, and a history teacher thinks he’s a fool. Bennett examines rivalry, adolescence and education with wit and precision.
