If you search Samuel French’s online there is an entry of “Rocky Horror Show” by Richard O’Brian. As far as I’m aware this musical has never been available for amateur before. Who’s going to be the first?

update 9th Oct 2006: A telephone call to Samuel French established that whilst the play is printed by them, it is not available to amateurs. They are collecting a waiting list just in case it ever does become available. Sorry guys.

Like their first film collaboration, the Oscar-nominated, BAFTA-winning feature The Madness of King George, director Nicholas Hytner’s and screenwriter Alan Bennett’s The History Boys began life at London’s National Theatre where Hytner is Artistic Director. The History Boys opened in May of 2004 and following a sold-out run, went on to win numerous prizes. After a hugely successful regional and world tour, in April 2005, The History Boys took Broadway by storm, selling out performances and sweeping a grand total of six Tony Awards.

As in the original National Theatre production, the film’s cast is led by Richard Griffiths, Clive Merrison, Frances de la Tour, and Stephen Campbell Moore, with Sacha Dhawan, Samuel Anderson, Dominic Cooper, Andrew Knott, Samuel Barnett, Russell Tovey, Jamie Parker and James Corden reprising their roles as the boys. New characters in Alan Bennett’s film adaptation are Penelope Wilton as the art teacher Mrs. Bibby, Adrian Scarborough as the Physical Education teacher Mr. Wilkes, and Georgia Taylor as Fiona, the Headmaster’s alluring secretary.

The History Boys was filmed over a period of six weeks on location in England in Watford and Yorkshire.
