The Wild Duck archiveA happy family is thrown into disarray by the arrival of an idealist, in Ibsen's 1884 drama. Should the truth be pursued, whatever the cost? The idealistic son of a wealthy businessman seeks to expose his father's duplicity and to free his childhood friend from the lies on which his happy home life is based.

Young Australian director Simon Stone reimagines Ibsen's The Wild Duck for the modern stage with a taut new script and a leading Australian cast. Hjalmar lives in a flat with his wife, senile father, visually impaired daughter and a duck. He's reasonably content, until his old friend Gregers returns to town, armed with disturbing revelations that threaten to blow their lives apart. Set within a glass enclosure, the action is accentuated, unfolding in rapid, unpredictable scenes. Driven by a superb ensemble, this is a work of immediacy and emotive power.Presented byBelvoir Sydney (after Henrik Ibsen). Adapted by Simon Stone. Adapted by Chris Ryan. Director Simon Stone.
