About this show

Bard SummerScape presents The Wild Duck, a masterpiece of poetic realism by the father of modern drama, Henrik Ibsen. The new production from returning young Irish director Caitriona McLaughlin, who staged last season's acclaimed Judgment Day, will be presented in David Eldridge's celebrated new translation. The play portrays the tragic consequences visited by the truth-seeking impulses of its protagonist - Gregers Werle, the idealistic son of a successful but duplicitous businessman - upon the family of his childhood friend, whose peaceful existence is founded on a tissue of lies. Performances take place in Theater Two of the Frank Gehry-designed Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on Bard College's bucolic Hudson River campus.
