A forbidden love story with a vintage soundtrack at the Lakeside Theatre
Thursday 2 November, 7.30pm
Edith Cole worked a dead-end job in a funeral parlour. Ralph Conti worked wealthy widows for a quick buck. Neither expected to fall in love.
But once they did, they just kept on falling.
Inspired by the true story of the ‘Lonely Hearts Killers’, a pair of latter-day Macbeths who gripped the imagination of 1950s America, Hummingbird is dark and compelling physical theatre.
Award-winning, Lecoq-trained Tooth+Nail blend acrobatics and
action with a striking visual style to tell a deviously touching tale of love
and murder, using a soundscape of songs, jingles, adverts and other Americana
to conjure up the post-war era.
'A sepia-toned doomed romance… Immaculate.' ★★★★ (The Scotsman)
