Competition - Humble Boy at the Oxford PlayhouseDate: 9 March 2011
Win 2 tickets to see Oxford Theatre Guild's new production of Charlotte Jones' brilliant comedy Humble Boy.
Felix Humble, bumbling Cambridge astrophysicist and cricket enthusiast, returns to the family home following the sudden death of his father. Flora, his difficult and demanding mother is determined to make a fresh start with George, a brash family friend. Secrets come tumbling out as Felix tries to come to terms with the past and what is yet to come.
Threads such as Hamlet, horticulture, black holes and beekeeping are woven into this warm and touching comedy which was first performed at the National Theatre in 2001 - winning the Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play and the People's Choice Best New Play Award.
Charlotte Jones is hailed by many as the natural successor to both Stoppard and Ayckbourn for her intelligent and richly comic scripts. Oxford Theatre Guild has a long history of performing to both audience and critical acclaim at the Playhouse.
Performances run from 5 to 9 April (full details on the Oxford Playhouse website - www.oxfordplayhouse.com)
