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, 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.
A sepia-toned doomed romance… Immaculate. The Scotsman, ★★★★
