Lent Week 6
Cat’s got big feet so her boyfriend calls her Duck. She’s also got a middle-aged lover who drinks and writes novels, a best friend with a short fuse, a dysfunctional family, and a boyfriend with a nightclub, a gun, and some unfinished business. But which of these threads will she follow?
Premiered at the Royal Court in 2003, Duck is the hilarious and moving dark comedy from Irish playwright Stella Feehily, a provocative coming-of-age story about teenagers on the brink, growing up in the face of everything a city can throw at them. But girls just wanna have fun, and how can you learn to be good when your elders are no longer your betters? Somehow, they must learn to cope or find a way of escaping.
Witty, sharply-observed and highly relevant to modern society, Duck is a show that will make you question the nature of sex, love, family and friendship, and all that falls in between them.
“Duck hurls its audience into the heart of ladette culture… without doubt, an adrenaline rush, a hyperventilating hymn to the age of the angry women.” The Evening Standard
"An exhilarating piece of theatre" The Scotsman
"Immensely engaging and vibrant" The Financial Times
