Does our grief age as we do?
Operation Hummingbird is a conversation across the decades about a sudden family death, realising an opportunity that we all wish we could do at some point in our life; go back and talk to our younger self. Taking the key themes from his own memoir, The Day the Alien Came
, Matt Harper-Hardcastle’s new play explores terminal illness, anticipatory grief and the complicated journey of living with loss.
This was originally created for York’s Dead Good Festival
2020, but due to the COVID pandemic was streamed as a rehearsed reading instead.
