The Impact Theatre’s newest production is Henrik Ibsen’s "The Wild Duck," directed by David Greenwood.

Considered one of Ibsen’s most complex dramas, the play is about two old school friends, Hjalmar Ekdal, who believes he is about to make a great invention, and Gregers Werle, who is determined to free his friend from all such illusions.

Greenwood, who was assistant director of Boerum Hill Arts Center’s production of "Steel Magnolias" in May 2002, told GO Brooklyn, "[’The Wild Duck’] mixes kitchen sink realism with a fair amount of symbolic language and references. It doesn’t really have a hero or a villain, just a bunch of human beings doing the best thing they can with the world view they have acquired."

The production will try to keep the period flavor, said Greenwood.

"We want the audience to feel that they are back in 19th century Norway, even though many of the themes are totally current: the way truth is perceived differently by different people and the issue of how to help people without hurting them at the same time."

"The Wild Duck" opens Feb. 19 and continues through Feb. 29, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sundays at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $15, $12 seniors and students. The Impact Theatre is located at 190 Underhill Ave. between Sterling Place and St. Johns Place in Prospect Heights. For reservations, call (718) 390-7163.
