A gaggle of farmyard characters join the naive, but loveable, Ugly in his rites-of-passage journey from misrepresented duckling to elegant swan. Peril lies around every corner, usually in the shape of the ravenous Cat, but Ugly receives help from unlikely sources and wins through thanks to his sheer good-naturedness.
This new musical is based on one of the world’s favourite fairy-tales, Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling”. Ugly is born, of course, as a Duckling but it soon becomes clear that he is no ordinary Duck. Mocked on the farmyard, pursued by the ever-hungry Cat, Ugly finds himself lost on a nearby marsh in the middle of a duck-shoot and embarks on an odyssey through the countryside, meeting a battery of colourful characters and finding himself, and love, along the way.
With a tuneful score, witty lyrics and book, Honk! confirms that Drew and Stiles are “the brightest hopes for the future of the British musical” Daily Telegraph.
