Wild Duck | Theatre Philadelphia

Wild Duck

The idealistic son of a wealthy businessman seeks to destroy his philandering father’s reputation by exposing an ancient extramarital affair, which will also free his childhood friend from the delusions and lies on which his happy marriage is based. Meanwhile, an ambitious young inventor spends so much of his time and energy trying to devise an invention which will make him rich that he is unaware of the true richness of his daily life. Does the truth or money set us free, and should it be pursued whatever the cost? Or is it better to enjoy life’s simple joys and to allow the past and its buried secrets to remain so.
