The Duck

Sometimes we all feel different, but not every one has that confirmed by a professional. The Duck grew up confused and fascinated by the world around her, but it is only when she receives her autism diagnosis that all those misunderstandings start making sense. 

Lucy Theobald and her labels as The Duck 2019

A funny and moving award-winning new play by autistic writer and poet, Rhi Lloyd-WilliamsThe Duck is an exploration of one woman’s life after she gets her autism diagnosis. Patterns and connections are fashioned from fragments of memories, as you follow the tangential threads through her mind, starring the talented Lucy Theobald, and directed by the experienced hand of Jo Loyn

Imagine you spent your whole life believing everyone was pretending and that everyone wore a mask. Imagine you are the swan who instead of finding your place in the world, built a duck-mask and learnt to waddle instead.

We are assured that no ducks were harmed in the production of this Play.
