Bennett hit play at the Guildhall

THE Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company will be taking a break from the works of the Bard for their next production, at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre from February 7-11.

The play to be performed is Alan Bennett’s smash-hit comedy/drama The History Boys.

This is the story of eight bright, anarchic sixth formers vying for places at top universities.

Considered one of his best plays, having won many awards, Alan Bennett’s brilliant script makes his audience laugh, cry and, most importantly, think.

The play contains adult content and occasional strong language.

Tickets cost £10 (concessions £8). Call the box office on 01332 255800.
