August 2016: The History Boys by Alan Bennett

Published 2006

Chosen by Dan,

"The last time the group collectively read a play was Angels in America, by Tony Kushner, in March 2013. In fact, that was my choice too! I thought it was now time for another one. I first saw the film a few years ago and then recently read the play.There are a couple of gay/questioning male characters to put under the spotlight so I thought it would make for a good discussion. I think this is a modern classic which tells stories about youth as well as adulthood. Plus, it's a fairly short read - not at all like Angels!"
