BENEDICT Morrison is bringing his real-life teaching experience to an Oxford University production Alan Bennett’s The History Boys.

Mr Morrison, 33, now studying for a PhD in English Literature and Philosophy at Oxford, taught in London for several years.

Now he will bring his experience to bear on the role of Hector, made famous by Richard Griffiths, who died in March last year.

He said: “There is something really intoxicating about teaching young people as they encounter ideas for the first time.’’ Performances are at the Oxford Playhouse every night at 7.30pm from Wednesday with matinees on Thursday and Saturday.

  • Tickets, priced from £11 to £17, are available online from oxfordplayhouse.com or by calling the box office on 01865 305305.
