Went to the premiere of D.C.Jackson's new play 'The Ducky' on Saturday evening. Produced by Borderline Theatre and starting an extensive tour of Scotland, this has to be the play to see this year. Jackson has a memorably irreverent wit and an understanding of the human condition which combined give moments of pure theatrical joy. Jackson's increasing skill in manipulating the dramatic to make his point bring the story of these young people struggling to find their place in the world to some hilarious highs and devastating lows. The script is brilliant, acting and direction first class and it all takes place on a very clever, well lit set. Bravo Borderline (who have, in my humble opinion, always been Scotland's Unofficial National Theatre).
