This is a single performance of a multi-date event. Go to the full range of dates and times for this event.
Time moves differently in the country. Brian and Jude have a farm they don’t want. Jude’s half-sister, Phoeb, turns up out of the blue following the disappearance of her husband Gavin.
But things begin to change around the farm the night Phoeb believes Gavin has returned. It’s just that Gavin isn’t exactly himself… Gavin is a hummingbird. As Phoeb attempts to build herself wings to join her bird-husband, the two reluctant famers are forced to confront their own lives, deal with the loss of a close friend and finally begin to move on.
Edward Albee’s ‘The Goat’ meets Michel Gondry’s ‘Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind’, Chris Neels’ play features banana milk, model spaceships, expectant sheep, and lost dreams. Hummingbird is a surreal and relatable exploration of grief, aspiration and dairy farming.
