The Not So Ugly Duckling: A Play For Grown-Ups


A familiar story retold for every adult. In a theatrical poem about life, in all its chaotic glory, a dramatic tale of transformation emerges for a time of change.

This contemporary interpretation of the much-loved, classic fairy tale dares to enter dark places and pose unanswered questions while celebrating the joy of life. It explores whether we can direct our own story in our search for a happy ending.

These preview performances are the result of a recent period of development. The creative team would value your feedback and you are welcome to join them for a post-show Q&A.
