From the 7th -10th of March 2013 Elephant Nation is proud to present: Hummingbird. A brand new play from the people that brought you last year’s critical success: The Seven Funerals of Charlie Morris and These are the Skeletons of Us. With their previous work being touted as ‘beautifully poignant and refreshing’, this new work is sure to move Auckland audiences.

If you wake up at a different time, a different place, could you wake up a different person?

Phoeb ran away. When she came back, she was gone. This is a play about loss. This is a play about love. This is a play about denial. It is an original look at how we are forced to be people who we never wanted to be and how we can escape that fate.

Sean Webb and Perlina Lau have collaborated with the Elephant Nation once more to create a dramatic and powerful new score, to be performed live during this honest and poignant new work.

This new play by Chris Neels, has brought together three exciting, young talents of the Auckland theatre and film industry including Sophie Vowell (Tartuffe, Private Lives), Chelsea McEwan Millar (These are the Skeletons of Us, Eingrau) and Jordan Selwyn (13, Thinning).

‘These are (if I may be so bold) some of the best young actors working in Auckland’ - James Wenley Theatrescenes

‘This hardworking truly vibrant company of excellent young theatre professionals has here presented a fully formed, incredibly well realised work and one of the funniest shows I have seen on stage this year’ - Steve Austin Theatreview
