Our Next Production

Version 7.01

Humble Boy concerns the comic confusions of Felix the Scientist, his domineering Mother, her vulgar Lover, his strangely ordinary Daughter, a rather mystical Gardener ….and some Bees! Felix may be searching for universal unity, but perhaps he had better start with himself and his dysfunctional family.

 The play premiered at the National Theatre in 2001, starring Diana Rigg and Simon Russell Beale. Humble Boy is “Sad, very sad; funny, very, very funny…this is a seriously wonderful play” [Sunday Times]
