Ugly Duckling (Fringe)

fri - sun

Duckie is… an ugly duck! She’s also adopted, a Z grade socialite (think the Kardashians poorer, less insta-famous next door neighbour) and suffers dysmorphic delusions of grandeur. Duckie is very discombobulated to learn that only cygnets, NOT ducks transform into beautiful swans. However Duckie won’t allow mere genetics to stand in her way as she utilises surgery, social media, celebrity, Botox, feathers and fillers to fulfil her self-appointed birthright. Part of The Butterfly club’s curated, Melbourne Fringe Festival season, Ugly Duckling combines all your favourite pop tunes like Lorde and Julia Michaels with everything you loved about films like Easy A, Ten things I hate about you and Clueless. Navigating the tricky terrain that every modern day femme faces, Duckie is Carrie Bradshaw on crack, with a little bit of KIMYE jumbled in for good measure. WIN TIX HERE
