WIN A DOUBLE PASS to The Wild Duck at Malthouse Theatre on Thursday March 1st, 2012.
Malthouse Theatre – 113 Sturt Street. SOUTHBANK VIC 3006.
THE WILD DUCK
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+
