‘Humble Boy’ is set in an English country garden, and is loosely based on the story of ‘Hamlet’. Felix Humble is drawn back to his family home after the death of his father, a biology teacher and amateur beekeeper. There in the garden he finds his waspish mother Flora, her downtrodden friend Mercy and suspiciously ever-present local businessman George Pye, whose daughter Rosie was once involved with Felix. A luncheon is arranged…
The play is wickedly funny, dark and poignant – It premiered at the National Theatre in 2001, directed by John Caird, with the leads played by Simon Russell Beale and Diana Rigg, and also featuring Cathryn Bradshaw, Denis Quilley, Marcia Warren and William Gaunt. It won the 2001 Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play and two 2001 Olivier Awards. It also had a successful run recently at the Orange Tree Theatre.
