Cat’s got big feet so her boyfriend calls her Duck.
Cat’s also got a middle-aged lover who drinks and writes books, a best friend with brains and a psychotic mum, a boyfriend with a nightclub, a gun, and some unfinished business… But which of these unravelling threads will she follow?

Cat and Sophie are teenagers on the brink, growing up in the face of everything a city can throw at them – in a world where your mum’s biggest worry is whether the milk’s back in the fridge, your lover refuses to say your name and the girl in the next cubicle has a low voice and surprisingly hairy hands… But girls just wanna have fun.

How can you learn to be good when your elders are no longer your betters? Somehow, the girls must cope – or find a way of escaping.

DUCK is the sparky and moving first play from Stella Feehily.
