The Ugliest Duckling
Tchick, tchick! 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 free from his egg. He’s not the fastest, not the strongest and definitely not the most popular. He tries and tries and tries again. He tries until he can’t try anymore. Leaving the farm behind he runs away and comes across a river. What he sees next is something he 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 small scale story filled with spectacle and sound boasts a lot of heart and is suitable for the whole family.
