Publisher Description

A new version of The Wild Duck, Ibsen's masterpiece about the nature of truth, in which a stranger intervenes to reveal the lies in the past of a family, with tragic consequences. In Icke's version the scenery and costumes grow gradually more naturalistic as the play progresses, and the characters break off from their lines to comment on the action and on Ibsen's life. 



A re-assessing of The Wild Duck: 



verb. to duck



1.     a quick lowering of the head (to avoid a blow or so as not to be seen) 2.     depart quickly 3.     avoid



noun. wild duck (more commonly known as mallard duck or anas platyrhynchos) – an undomesticated duck.



note. Due to its beautiful feathers, the mallard duck is one of the most popular ducks for hunters. When injured or threatened, ducks have been alleged to commit suicide, by diving to the bottom of the water, never returning to the surface. 



This version of The Wild Duck was produced at The Almeida Theatre, London, and a review in The Stage remarked: "Icke has a way of pinking the cheeks of canonical plays and making them breathe"
