The History Boys
Alan Bennett’s hilariously funny and exceptionally moving semi-autobiographical play set the theatre-world alight when it premiered in 2004, going on to be a smash-hit in both the West End and on Broadway, collecting Olivier and Tony awards for Best New Play and Best Play respectively.
The History Boys charts the fortunes of an unruly bunch of bright sixth form boys as they each set out to secure themselves a coveted place at Oxford or Cambridge.
It’s a compelling exploration of both the anarchy of adolescence and the very purpose of education itself, but it’s also a wonderful feel-good evening, shot through with Alan Bennett’s masterful wit and abundant humanity – quite simply a must-see.
Brewhouse Auditorium 7.30pm
£8.00 (£7.00 concessions. Concessions available Monday to Thursday only.
All Matinee tickets £7.00
Thursday 20th March
A First World War Centenary Arts & Heritage Project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund in partnership with the Burton Co-operative Learning Trust, ESBC, National Theatre & Staffordshire Great War Trail.
A perfect seaside excursion; Punch and Judy and ice creams in Scarborough for the bank holiday 1914. But, the threat of war is looming – Burton is then plunged into the centre of the First World War. The boys of Burton are sent away, along with shire horses from the Bass Breweries. People of Burton are cheering on the streets as our boys and horses are dressed with flowers and ribbons and sent to faraway lands, leaving home; uncertain of their return.
Step back in time to Burton in the First World War and discover the incredible story of George Fearn from Tutbury. Inspired through the astonishing letters he wrote back to his family and the themes from the National Theatre’s War Horse. Join pupils from Richard Wakefield and Horninglow Primary, as they take you on a journey through the sights, sounds and impact of the Great War as they see it.
Alongside this performance there will be a chance to explore the pupil’s work and community collections in the Gallery Space at the Brewhouse Arts Centre, throughout the whole of March.
Brewhouse Auditorium 5.30pm FREE
