Reviews: The Duck


“It details the trials and tribulations, thrills and sensitivities of experiencing life as an autistic woman. The play, in part autobiographical, depicts how Rhi Lloyd-Williams identifies as autistic; highlighting social-political challenges, injustices and nuances. Produced by Autact Theatre CIC, an autistic-led theatre company, ‘The Duck’ can be viewed as an encouraging, accurate and ultimately human interpretation of feminine spectrum-hood”

Emma Robdale, Disability Arts Online March 2020

“Lloyd-Williams’s brilliance is that she enables the non-autistic person to inhabit her mind, to loan it for a brief yet vivid moment. This is not the usual autism shtick so many autistic people have come to dread, this is something wholly new”

Sonia Boue at Stroud Theatre Festival September 18

“Lucy’s energetic acting and Rhi’s masterful writing combine wonderfully so whether you yourself have autism, you have family members with autism or you know nothing about it, this is well worth a watch for a fun and informative experience.”

Seraphina Allard-Bridge at Barnstaple Fringe TheatreFest July 18

“This was a fast-paced, frenetic, funny, intelligent, occasionally sad, incredibly engaging and informative performance. This is the sort of autistic performance that I want to see, and that I want non-autistics to see.”

Paula Sanchez at Plymouth Fringe Festival June 18
