Humble Boy

9 May 2014

The disparate characters of Charlotte Jones' 2001 play Humble Boy were brilliantly realised by Lower Sixth Drama students in their two performances of the play at The Ship Theatre this week. Melancholic Felix, petulant Flora, bawdy George, down-to-earth Rosie and dithering Mercy were all acutely observed and every drop of comedy skilfully extracted from this tale of beekeeping and astrophysics often described as 'the English Hamlet'.
