Hummingbird
  • Brighton Fringe

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)
