Ugly Duckling

1st December 2022 - 31st December 2022

Written by Emma Reeves. 

Meet the most unusual duckling the pond has ever seen!

In their nest at the edge of a pond, the baby ducklings wait impatiently for Mummy’s enormous egg to hatch. But their new brother doesn’t look like everyone else. He doesn’t even quack like a proper duckling!

Teased and called Ugly by his siblings, our hero goes on an adventure in search of a place to fit in. As the seasons change the woodland trees from dark weathered branches to silver sticks of frost, the lost and lonely fledgling meets a menagerie of mischievous animals…. But where does he really belong?

tutti frutti brings to life Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known tale with inventive physicality and live music that quacks and trills. This charming production plays with the importance of identity, self-worth and takes us on a journey to discover inner beauty.
