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 work in progress explores terminal illness, anticipatory grief and the complicated journey of living with loss.
This was originally created for York's Dead Good Festival 2020. As part of our #DistantNeigbours project we will be hosting an online rehearsed reading of the script in July. We'd love to hear your thoughts as we aim to redevelop this play for audiences in 2021.
