Thirty-five year old Felix Humble is a Cambridge astrophysicist in search of a unified field theory. He returns to his Middle England home and his demanding and difficult mother after the sudden death of his father, where he soon realises that his search for unity must include his own chaotic home life.
From sublimely silly laugh -out -loud moments, to poignant and heartfelt drama, spend a summer with the Humble family amongst the birds and the bees of their English country garden. It is directed by Mark Fuller.
Winner of the 2002 Critic’s Circle Theatre Award, and inspired by Hamlet, Humble Boy is a comedy about broken vows, failed hopes and the joys of bee-keeping.
