Humble Boy by Charlotte Jones
Directed by Tony Fullwood

Performed by the Norwich Players at the Maddermarket Theatre, Norwich on Tuesday 22nd April 2014.

Blending Ayckbourn’s comedy of family relationships with Stoppard’s wit, Humble Boy rings with Shakespearean echoes.    400 years after Shakespeare gave us Hamlet, the most famous depressive in world literature, another unhappy son returns home from university for his father’s funeral to find his mother in love with a man he despises.

In a Cotswold garden, astrophysicist Felix Humble mourns the loss of his father’s beloved bees and seeks a unified theory of everything whilst avoiding the black holes of failure, love and grief.

Premiered at the Royal National Theatre, in 2002 HUMBLE BOY won both the Critics’ Circle and the People’s Choice New Play Awards.
