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.

Times:
Fri 8th Dec 19:00

Rory Kinnear is Marx and Oliver Chris is Engels, in this brilliant new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

It’s 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke and restless, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective love rivals all circle like vultures, but there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night out than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Running time: 1hr 40 mins inc. interval
