“Rob the average man of his life of illusion and your rob him of his happiness at the same stroke.”

A successful business man holds a party for his returned son. The son invites an old friend. There’s now thirteen people at the table.That’s how Henrik Ibsen’s The Wild Duck begins. Then an affair comes to light and the wheels are set in motion.

In a tragicomedy about human nature, Ibsen tells a story about idealism, self-deceit and the lies we choose to live with. A comedy about keeping up appearances and the illusions that keep us happy. A tragedy about innocence and human relationships that thrive on lies and are destroyed by the truth. Are we condemned to live with the lies that makes us happy in the confinements that make us comfortable? Or can we be free and true to our nature, like a wild duck?

This show contains loud noises.
