It’s the summer of 2005, England prepares to win the Ashes and Ismail (Smiley to his friends), a British Indian schoolboy, is about to become the youngest ever player in his elite public school’s First XI cricket team.

He sets his sights on immortality, breaking the school batting record and getting his name into Wisden.

But things are about to heat up.

From award-winning playwright maatin, Duck is about adolescence, the pressures of sporting competition and finding your identity in an environment that doesn’t cater for difference.

Recipient of the Pleasance's Charlie Hartill Fund 2024.
