The Ugliest Duckling
Wednesday 23 October 2019
One by one the eggs break open. Except for one.
This one is the biggest egg of all.
The hens peck, the roosters crow and the ducks quack around the last duckling to break out of its egg. It’s not the fastest, not the strongest and definitely not the most popular. The duckling tries and tries and tries again. It tries until it can’t try anymore. Leaving the farm behind the duckling runs away and comes across a river. What it sees next is something it could never have imagined.
Exploring resilience, transformation and joy, Q Theatre’s adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling is a celebration of difference. This is a non-verbal performance featuring theatre, dance, circus and music. Created with five to eight years old in mind this performance boasts a lot of heart and is suitable for the whole family.
