Malthouse Theatre – 113 Sturt Street. SOUTHBANK VIC 3006.


Are there some truths it’s better not to know?

Winner of three Helpmann Awards (2011) and four Sydney Theatre Awards (2011), this taut, stripped-back rendition of a modern classic never lets up. Director Simon Stone has developed from a wunderkind of Melbourne’s indie theatre to an established force on Australia’s mainstages. Here he transplants Ibsen’s characters into the contemporary world in a new play tailor-made for an astonishing cast led by Ewen Leslie.

Hjalmar Ekdal grew up rich but scandal cast him into poverty. Now he lives in a tiny flat with his father, his wife, his daughter and a duck. When his old friend Gregers Werle returns with unfinished business, the truth Gregers brings could shatter the world Hjalmar has built around himself.

A bittersweet portrait of family dysfunction, deception and denial, The Wild Duck resounds for a new age.

Duration: 90 minutes no interval. Ages: 16+
