2003, Mazrat Gaol. One of Saddam’s most notorious torture houses. More than 10,000 people died here. Now, under Allied command, Nassir works here. He’s a local, translating for the American interrogators. He’s pro-Western, determined to bring liberal values to his country. And he’s about to get married to his sweetheart. But when he is recognized by a psychotic prisoner, his life becomes a living hell…

Henrik Ibsen’s “The Wilk Duck” takes over Barbican’s Belvoir theatre from the 23 of October in a play remade for the modern stage.
Simon Stone and Chris Ryan are the responsible for bringing the story to life: “Hjalmar lives in a flat with his wife, senile father, visually impaired daughter and a duck. Still he’s reasonably content, until his old friend Gregers returns to town, armed with disturbing revelations that threaten to blow their lives apart.”
If you’re teased by the story, then book your tickets here (from £16).
Spoiler alert: The production includes a live duck.
