Duck

by Tom Block

directed by Katrin Hilbe

Duck at IRT Theater 

Duck (Billy) has reached the end of his rope and only communicates by quacking. After a career in the CIA, which has led to a downward emotional spiral, he finds himself on a park bench, which happens to be the home of his older brother Crumb (John), who was also once a CIA operative and Duck's colleague. Crumb lost faith in the system, leaving his younger brother to participate in killing for reasons of state while he, Crumb, dropped out of society. Crumb takes Duck on a trip through Duck's past, so Duck might understand how he went from a statistician to a murderer -- if he even has the responsibility implied by calling him a murderer. This is an absurdist-philosophical piece which raises important social and political concerns about personal responsibility and how and when one should be "accepting" of their fate, and when they should fight against it.
