Humble Boy

February 2008

A bitter-sweet comedy by Charlotte Jones


All is not well in the Humble hive. Thirty-five year old Felix Humble is a Cambridge astro-physicist in search of a 'theory of every everything'. Following the sudden death of his father, Felix returns to his middle England home and his difficult and demanding mother, where he soon realises that his search must include his own chaotic home life.
