The Wild Duck
by David Eldridge
from the original by Henrik Ibsen
directed by Murray Ross
“Tell the truth and shame the devil”--but what if the truth is told by a devil? You’ll be on the edge of your seats when the cold clear light of day threatens a happy home. A classic of suspense from Norway’s greatest playwright.
Wild ducks always do that. They dive down to the bottom--as deep as they can get--and they bite down on all the weeds and wrack and all the garbage down there. And they never come up again.

What are audiences saying about The Wild Duck?
Here are a few quotes from the patron surveys we sent out after opening weekend:
The entire production was magnificent!.The acting was especially good. Ibsen gave them a wonderful play to display their talent.
It's no Sunday walk in the park, that's for sure. But it's Ibsen after all. The staging, set and acting were all excellent.
The play was spellbinding, absorbing & riveting. The relationships among the characters were "real" even now in the 21st century. The acting was outstanding, so much so that I was totally unaware of how quickly the time passed.
If you love theatre, you'll love this one.
Its a play that makes you think about relationships and families, and whether its better to keep secrets or share the truth when you know it will cause pain.
The set was gorgeous. The acting was wonderful. I was enthralled.
