Description“Belonging? Simply a longing to be… right? Just be.”
Ella dreams of homecoming, Lloyd yearns for his beloved and their children confront their vulnerabilities.
When Ella’s world is torn apart by the Home Office’s ‘hostile environment’ policy, her loved and lost ones attempt to piece it back together.
Hummingbird is a thought-provoking and poignant new play, exploring the ways in which belonging is found in unfamiliar homes. Hummingbird touches on the complexity of British identity and the way migrant communities find a place within them.
Written by Ilayda McIntosh, associate artist at Nouveau Riche and participant of TALAWA’s debut writers group, Hummingbird challenges and blends theatrical form through dub-poetry, music and poetic verse. Based on real-lived experiences.
