Loosely based on Hamlet, Humble Boy, by Charlotte Jones, premiered at the National Theatre in 2001 with Diana Rigg and Simon Russell Beale in the leading roles. It is a play about the relationship between a mother and a son and how each of them responds to the death of James Humble, Felix’s father and Flora’s husband. It also covers the joys of bee keeping.
The play won the Critic’s Choice award and the People’s Choice award for best new play. The play is both sad and funny in equal measure and hopefully a little bit magical.
