The Wild Duck is reimagined for the modern stage, with the action unfolding within a glass enclosure.

Hjalmar lives in a flat with his wife, senile father, visually impaired daughter and a duck. Still he’s reasonably content, until his old friend Gregers returns to town, armed with disturbing revelations that threaten to blow their lives apart.

Known in Australia as a ‘fearless adaptor of classic plays’ (Daily Telegraph, Sydney), Simon Stone liberates the drama with a taut new script, distilled cast and action that unfolds in rapid, unpredictable scenes. Driven by a superb ensemble, this is a work of immediacy and emotive power.

‘Stone’s gone straight for the jugular in his surgery of Ibsen’s text and given it a newfound fierceness and muscularity’ Time Out Sydney
