Email - to book. 


An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results; a history teacher who thinks he's a fool.

In Alan Bennett's classic play, staff room rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it; about education and its purpose.

The History Boys premiered at the National in May 2004, before touring within the UK and heading to Broadway. It was also made into a film in 2006. 

Rehearsal and Play Readings LOCATION:

Bath Rec Pavilion

This is the green wooden building, just off William Street / Pultney Mews.

Please note - you cannot park at the Rec itself, and we kindly ask that you park in the streets surrounding. Thanks!


Tickets coming soon

The Alchemist
by Ben Jonson

Directed by Scarlett Hayler-King

Weds 4th - Sat 7th Oct 



The sickness hot, a master quit, for fear,

His house in town, and left one servant there;

Ease him corrupted, and gave means to know

A Cheater, and his punk; who now brought low,


Leaving their narrow practice, were become

Cozeners at large; and only wanting some

House to set up, with him they here contract,

Each for a share, and all begin to act.


Much company they draw, and much abuse,

In casting figures, telling fortunes, news, Selling of flies, flat bawdry with the stone,

Till it, and they, and all in fume are gone.


In 1890s London, three con artists intend to cheat the wealthy and greedy with a con involving alchemy and the Philosopher's Stone. As their schemes and mockery of their marks become more absurd, will their deceit get found out, or will they manage to conjure the elusive Philosopher's Stone?
