The Duck: A glimpse into one autistic woman’s world
Fri 19 Jun 7:00 pm
Sometimes we all feel different, but not everyone has that confirmed by a professional. The Duck grew up confused and fascinated by the world around her, but it is only when she receives her autism diagnosis that all those misunderstandings start making sense.
A funny and moving award-winning new play by autistic writer and poet, Rhy Lloyd-Williams. The Duck is an exploration of one woman’s life after she gets her autism diagnosis. Patterns and connections are fashioned from fragments of memories, as you follow the tangential threads through her mind, starring Lucy Theobald, and directed by Jo Loyn.
Imagine you spent your whole life believing everyone was pretending and that everyone wore a mask. Imagine you are the swan who instead of finding your place in the world, built a duck-mask and learnt to waddle instead.
