Humble Boy - Summer 2017


JULY 14th, and 15th at 8:00 pm

Call 360 468 3644 for tickets

Set in an English garden, this play is replete with beekeeping and astrophysics. Imbued with heartbreak and wit, full of large questions about the universe and smaller questions about family dynamics, it is moving, sad and tremendously funny.

A timid, bumbling Cambridge astrophysicist is in search of the elusive Theory of Everything. After the sudden death of his father, he returns to the family home in the English countryside and is forced to acknowledge that his search for unity must include his own chaotic life. A climactic summer supper party brings tensions to a boil, in a scene that is both hilarious and heart-breaking.


Since Island Stage Left offers all its performances free of charge, we do not sell tickets or take reservations (unless you are a member of the Star Circle), although donations are always appreciated and are essential to the longevity of the company.


Seating is on a first come, first served basis and arriving at least 15 minutes early is always a good idea especially for the indoor shows.


In the summer, our outdoor performances have chairs set up, and also space for you to bring your own chairs if you prefer, plus space for blankets and sleeping bags close to the stage.


The request to bring warm clothes and blankets is to keep you warm, as the temperature can drop 20 degrees on some summer nights.
We look forward to seeing you!
