"Funny & Poignant" "Superbly Acted" "Heart-Achingly Tender" "Thoroughly Absorbing"
"Truly exceptional piece of theatre" "Very Moving Production"
"The inconspicuous direction of Susan Conte who
lets the action feel instinctive and spontaneous" Essential Surrey
"Joyful, Painful, Honest"
"The resilience of the Wild Duck cast to the demands of the material is a truly impressive achievement "
"Borrell’s writing, enraptured by the cyclical nature of things, is also realised in the
cool blues and crisp whites of the seasons as they pass.
Exceptionally gorgeous work from lighting designer Katie Nicholl" Georgia Renwick for Mark Aspen Reviews
Searingly beautiful family saga, set in a small town in Australia, explores the opposing pulls of the tight bonds of family against the urge of four siblings to grow up and leave the nest.
Created in 2016 by Andrew Bovell (together with Frantic Assembly and a GCSE English resource text), the production included original music © Joe Evans and physical theatre from Wild Duck Theatre.
This is theatre to encourage the whole family to talk about growing up – and to weep a bit.
