4.0 out of 5 stars Play is good read Dec 26 2003
Format:Paperback
I saw this play in NYC with Jared Harris and Blair Brown and really enjoyed it. It was funny and moving and really had heart. When I picked it up to read it, I wondered if it would read as well -- and it did. This is a very smart play -- Charlotte Jones has written a play where the characters are fully realized and funny -- all the while searching for understanding, connection and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, clever, gentle and poignant Sept. 23 2004
By Daniel M. Hobbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just saw this play produced at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. There are only so many family skeletons you can expose, and "Humble Boy" borrows liberally from that well-stocked closet. But those it drags out are embodied in well-defined characters and presented with fresh wit, excellent pacing, gentleness, and poignancy. Felix's search for the physicist's "theory of everything" is handled lightly, never bogs down in technical jargon, and never overshadows the characters' concerns of the heart. Although I would have preferred a slightly different ending, it worked because the characters were true to themselves. A wonderful play.

It is rare that a play can surprise and delight me as much as this one did. If you are looking for a charming and important play to produce - I suggest this.
4.0 out of 5 stars "Humble Boy" - A funny and well-crafted play May 31 2011
By David King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Humble Boy" by Charlotte Jones, is a well crafted and poignantly funny little play. The characters are cleverly drawn with all being sympathetic and despicable in different mixtures. This gives all of us who read it pause to consider how we treat and react with others who may have, by no fault of their own, fallen into an undesired or different life or life-style. Worth a careful read.Humble Boy: A Play
