Premiering in Dublin Theatre Festival as part of its nationwide tour
on 29th September - 3rd October at Pavilion Theatre and
7th – 9th October at Draíocht.
Followed by performances at the Everyman Theatre Cork; Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny; Lyric Theatre, Belfast; and Belltable, Limerick.
Duck Duck Goose follows the story of Chris Quinn, a young man who, in an attempt to help his friend, becomes deeply embroiled in a rape allegation. As the rules change, and confusion reigns supreme, Chris struggles between loyalty, love and doubt.
Full of moral ambiguity and psychological complexity, this viscerally-charged new play by Caitríona Daly constantly shifts our perspective on ideas of consent, trust, and trial by social media
Duck Duck Goose by Caitríona Daly was developed as part of our A Play for Ireland initiative between 2017 and 2019. This was a two-year process in association with Draíocht, The Everyman, Lime Tree Theatre/Belltable, Lyric Theatre, Pavilion Theatre, and Town Hall Theatre. This play is the second to have been produced through this programme.

About Fishamble’s A Play for Ireland
As part of Fishamble's : The New Play Company 30th year in 2018, we set out to find one, big, ambitious play, that bursts with humanity and tackles a subject about which the playwright feels passionate - A PLAY FOR IRELAND that captures the zeitgeist of the country, that demands to be produced. Submissions were invited from across Ireland at the start of this two-year process, which encouraged the citizens of Ireland, and non-Irish citizens living on the island of Ireland, to write plays, engaging people aged 18+, from all communities, throughout the country. The Alternative by Michael Patrick and Oisin Kearney was chosen and produced in 2019, winning two Irish Times Theatre Awards. Duck Duck Goose is the second play from this initiative to be produced by Fishamble.
