The History Boys at Venture Theatre

This is the final weekend of the play at Venture Theatre. I haven't seen any review of it in the Gazette. Where are you Jaci?

Written by Alan Bennett, opened in London in 2004, made into a movie in 2006 and then out in the hinterlands of the USA in the last couple of years. To be produced in Billings this early is a good thing.

It is about a group of schoolboys and their teachers in the 1980s trying to get the former into Oxford and Cambridge by coaching them for the examination. It could be fun. Thurs, Fri and Sat evening.

See the entry in Wikipedia, where the picture to the left comes from.

History Boys didn't quite make it for me. I think it was the playwright that failed.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
