Humble Boy is an award-winning comedy with a delightful sting in the tail.
Following the sudden death of his father, thirty-five-year-old Felix Humble, a Cambridge academic, returns to his Middle England home and his difficult and demanding mother. After a chaotic funeral, and the disappearance of his father’s prized bees, it becomes clear to Felix that life at the Humble home will never be the same again.
Past and present collide with love and uncertainty in this original and captivating play.
