Theater Thursday: "The History Boys" at TimeLine

Thursday, April 23

The History Boys by Alan Bennett

TimeLine Theatre, 615 W. Wellington Ave.

Take a trip to England with TimeLine Theatre! First, help us welcome our new neighbor, Firkin & Pheasant, to Lakeview East and enjoy some great atmosphere and a historyboysselection of light hors d’oeuvres and drinks with TimeLine artists. Then it’s off to TimeLine to be among the first in Chicago to see Alan Bennett’s worldwide theatrical sensation in its highly anticipated local premiere. The recipient of more than 30 major awards, including Tony and Olivier awards for Best New Play, The History Boys follows a rambunctious group of clever young men as they pursue higher learning, games, sexual identity and a place at university under the guidance of three wildly different teachers and a headmaster obsessed with results. Set during the 1980s in northern England, it is a hilarious and provocative play about the anarchy of adolescence and the purpose of education, specifically, how history should be taught.

Event begins at 6 p.m. at Firkin and Pheasant, 670 W. Diversey

Show begins at 7:30 p.m.
For reservations call 773.281.8463 x24 and mention “Theater Thursdays.”
