A brand new play from the makers of last year's hit seasons: '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 charm Auckland audiences. 

'So what will you do now?'
'I don't know, with wings and shit.'

After having her life disappear, Phoebe takes shelter at her sister's dairy farm. With nothing left, she decides to do something opposite, unthinkable, exciting. Turn into a Hummingbird and fly. This is a play about Loss. This is a play about Dreams. This is a play about Denial. It is an original look at the lengths people are willing to go to avoid dealing with what they really need to.

This new play by Chris Neels, brings together three exciting, talents of Auckland theatre: Sophie Henderson (Private Lives, Tartuffe), Chelsea McEwan Millar (Eingraugh, Norty Girls, The Vibrator Play) and Barnaby Fredric (The Irrefutable Truth About Petfood, Megachristmas). Directed by Nic Sampson (Space Race, Black Confetti).

'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 realized work and one of the funniest shows I have seen on stage this year' - Stephen Austin, Theatreview.
