"The Wild Duck" is a play by Henrik Ibsen, one of the most significant playwrights in the World Theater. A return from travelling abroad reveals unexpected family secrets that pass through two families in three generations. The secrets raise the question of how truth and justice have a place in a society where success, image, and profit are guaranteed to bring personal happiness and fulfilment. These are the main themes of Ibsen, woven in the unusual symbol of one pet – the wild duck, and lived mostly in the context of photography – the main occupation of a part of the play's characters. "The Wild Duck" is a premonition of the age of self-observation, in which we exist today and in which filming replaces living.
