Humble Boy is a comedy about broken vows, failed hopes and the joys of beekeeping.
All is not well in the Humble hive. Thirty-five-year-old Felix Humble is a Cambridge astrophysicist in search of a unified field theory. 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 for unity must include his own chaotic home life.
Praise for Charlotte Jones’s previous play, In Flame:

‘A play about life and death, love and lust, guilt and hope and dreams and the whole damn thing. It has some of the best writing I have come across recently: vigorous, poetic and lethally funny, probing hearts with warmth, compassion and irony.’ Sunday Times

‘Watching Charlotte Jones’s play In Flame is an experience of pleasure virtually unalloyed. It is funny, but with depth; painful, but with delicacy.’ Financial Times

Humble Boy premièred at the Royal National Theatre, London, in August 200т.
