About this show

Will the truth set you free? An idealistic son exposes his family's corruption, in the world premiere of a new version by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn.

Hjalmar Ekdal's father was rich until scandal cast the family into poverty. Now he lives in a small, shabby home with his senile father, his wife Gina and his daughter Hedvig. And a duck. And there's about to be a new member of the household. Although based almost entirely on self-deception and illusion, the Ekdal home is a happy one, but Gregers Werle has just returned to town with some unfinished business that could shatter the little world Hjalmar has built around himself.
