Overview

You’re out, boy.

Ismail’s turning fifteen and life is good. He’s about to become the youngest-ever member of his school’s cricket team, and be immortalised in Wisden. But as the season starts, a new coach threatens to derail his plans. Ismail soon learns that fortunes are fleeting in life and in sport, and that cricket may not be the gentlemanly game he once thought.

A searing examination of the inner workings of an elite schoolboy cricket team, Duck explores how racism boldly infects our most polite of institutions. Written by Creative Associate maatin, and directed by Abbey Creative Associate Imy Wyatt Corner.
