Alan Bennett's new play on the subject of education, encompassing both the tussles of staff-room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence.
Set in the 1980s in the fictional Cutlers' Grammar School in Sheffield, the play follows a group of history pupils preparing for the Oxbridge entrance exams under the guidance of three contrasting teachers and a headmaster with ambitions to move the school up the academic league table.
