Yesterday Sheila and I saw The History Boys, which is part of the Dublin Theatre Festival. It was good. It’s kind of a racy Dead Poets Society or Goodbye Mr Chips. They did a good job of adding in a lot of multimedia. As scenery changes happened, they showed brief videos with great 80s music (Madness, Duran, Duran). The videos showed various scenes from around the school and gave you a sense of what the school was like.

It was a matinee show. So the only other people in the full house were retired people and students. I was a little surprised that there were so many students as the themes from the play tended to get very racy.

After the play we went shopping and had a pint. It was fun afternoon/evening in town.
