The award-winning play by Alan Bennett is a great read.
As a history major, it really caught my attention and I was impressed with the great historiagraphical thinking being thrown around in the play.
The dialogue is sparklingly witty and smart and although there are many characters they each have a distinct spirit.
It arrived super quick and was exactly what I was expecting. Great stuff, cheers.Published 22 days ago by Claire

Really well written play. It confirms my views of the world and the British system of education.
Recomended for the visual reader.
