A psychological thriller masquerading as an absurdist comedy. Or, in the words of a reader for the Baltimore Playwright's Festival:
"There is a Vonnegut-like aspect to the play, perhaps combined with Joseph Heller. It's serious, satirical, and nihilistic all at the same time."
Duck explores the internal dissolution of an American patriot, one who did the right thing and played by the rules, rising to become a decorated hero for his work for the CIA. However, the more Duck devotes himself to his clandestine work, the deeper becomes his internal sense of horror, with himself and the world.

It's been one year since the bomb. Noah and her ragtag group of misfits have managed to survive-- barely. But when a stranger breaches the safety of their bunker, survival alone won't be enough.
The fate of the post-world is in the audience's hands. We say grab your go-bag and head to the bunker, because it's going to be a Dark and Stormy night.
What will be our heroes fate?

"Villanueva has woven a story as complex as the issues it tackles. It is a story that challenges our ideas of masculinity and femininity, parental expectations, birth order, the wounded softness of family home life against the harsh comfort of war. The playwright takes her audience on a broad scoping journey of global proportions and then gathers up all those far reaching threads to focus on the story of her characters' most personal desires. This is a play for our time – the time of America's constant love affair with war."
