Set in the 1980s, The History Boys questions the purpose and means of education. In a school where the headmaster cares only about exam results, a bunch of excitable sixth-form boys go about their pursuit of the important things: sex, sport and a university place. Desmond Barrit, who played English teacher Hector in 2005 on tour and at the NT, returns to the role for the tour and possible transfer.
