the history boys

History Boys at the Buxton Opera House – 19th – 20th May 2015

Since it first opened in 2004, Alan Bennett’s comedy masterpiece has gone on to become one of the nation’s favourite plays.

Set in the 1980s, The History Boys is the story of a group of bright, funny and unruly sixth formers in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. Their maverick English teacher is at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher, whilst their headmaster is obsessed with results and league tables. Staffroom rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence overflow, provoking insistent questions about history and how you teach it. Their Alevels may be over, but their true education is only just beginning.

Bursting with witty one-liners and thought provoking questions, a vibrant ensemble cast bring Bennett’s Oxbridge hopefuls brilliantly to life as the boys discover the true meaning of education and give their teachers some lessons of their own.

This brand new production of The History Boys fizzes with infectious energy and humour. Down to earth, relatable and incredibly funny, this is a classic entertaining night at the theatre.

Enjoy a 2 course pre show dinner, tickets to see The End of the Affair at the Buxton Opera House, overnight accommodation and an award winning Full English Breakfast all from £ per person based on 2 guests sharing a room.

The End of the Affair 28th and 29th April 2015

Starring Neil Roberts (Holby City), George Telfer (Emmerdale) and Sarah Stanley (Alan Ayckbourn’s Roundelay)

Set in London during and just after World War II, The End of the Affair tells the story of up and coming writer Maurice Bendrix and his passionate relationship with Sarah Miles, the wife of an impotent civil servant.

After a violent episode at Maurice’s apartment, Sarah suddenly and without explanation breaks off the affair. This very intimate story examines themes of obsession and jealousy, enhanced by writer Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God.

Acclaimed theatre company Talking Scarlet brings this classic text to stage following visits to the Opera House with Devil at Midnight and Double Death.
