The stakes are high at Cutlers’ Grammar School in England as the boys are preparing for entrance exams to Oxford and Cambridge. With the guidance of their three history teachers bringing different methods of educating the young men --some more unconventional than others, the boys discover the use of education to inspire personal growth and wisdom, and to help them through painful experiences. This drama, which won the Tony Award for Best Play in 2006 is sure to leave a lasting impression on audiences.
