The department of theatre at the College of the Holy Cross will present a seldom-revived 19th century masterpiece “The Wild Duck” written by Henrik Ibsen and directed by Steve Vineberg, professor of theatre, on April 11-13 and 18-20 at 8 p.m. in Fenwick Theatre (located on the second floor of O’Kane Hall). Tickets are $7 for members of the Holy Cross community and $10 for the general public. Tickets can be reserved by calling the box office at (508)-793-2496.

In Ibsen’s complex, unsettling play a prodigal son returns to confront his wealthy father with his moral failings and to enlighten the childhood friend whose family, he believes, have been grievously injured by them.  But his mission — to bring into the light of truth those who live in the darkness, deluded by lies — brings disastrous results.

Vineberg says he chose the play because Ibsen is one of his favorite playwrights and “The Wild Duck” is one of his favorite plays. “I’ve taught it but never directed it — or, indeed, ever directed any Ibsen — and I’ve never even seen it performed on stage,” he says. “It’s a masterpiece.”

The play features a cast of 18 undergraduate students, including Nicholas Jorgensen ’16 as Hjalmar Ekdal, Shannon LoCascio ’14 as Gina Ekdal, Patrick Simas ’14 as Gregers Werle and Nicole Williams ’15 as the Hedvig Ekdal.
