For the teenagers of the small Ayrshire town of Stewarton, there's change in the air.
Rab's back from Cambridge. He feels alienated there; he feels alienated in his home town, too. Michelle's returned to spend some time with her great-gran while she can. She reckons university isn't all it's cracked up to be, too. Meanwhile, Norma's sweeping up in the local hairdresser's until she works out what to do.
Two years is a long time in a teenager's life.
The second play in the trilogy which includes The Wall and The Chooky Brae, D. C. Jackson's The Ducky premiered in a Borderline Theatre Company production at the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock, in May 2009.
