A wry, witty portrait of middle class England, the play is a comedy about broken vows, failed hopes and the joys of bee keeping. All is not well in the Humble hive. Thirty-five year old Felix is a Cambridge astro-physicist 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.
Telegraph and Argus - Sue Butterfield:
"Bruce Sturrock was magnificent as the bumbling, unmarried and largely unsuccessful university lecturer. The audience feels for him as he gets one shock after another."
"Jan Thomas, as Felix's vain mother Flora was Queen Bee of the stage and Glenn Boldy gave a bull-at-a-gate portrayal of Flora's arrogant boyfriend George"
"Susan Ward's comic timing was spot on......and Freda Denbigh, as family friend Mercy had the audience in stitches"
