Caitríona Daly’s Duck Duck Goose is a viscerally charged play examining the nature of consent, trust and trial by social media. Full of moral ambiguity and psychological complexity, it was developed as part of Fishamble’s A Play for Ireland initiative, and first performed by the company in the 2021 Dublin Theatre Festival.
