Duckie is well… an ugly duck, she’s also adopted, a Z grade socialite and suffers dysmorphic delusions of grandeur. Growing up with her faith in the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale she’s very discombobulated to find that only signets NOT ducks transform into beautiful swans. However Duckie won’t allow mere genetics to stand in her way as she utilises surgery, celebrity, Botox and fillers to fulfill her self-appointed birthright. Ugly Duckling is a cabaret told through song and spoken word, performed by Karla Hillam ( The Divine Miss Bette, Los Nachos Trios, Offspring, Wentworth and The Warriors) and written and directed by the multi-award winning international cabaret artiste Spanky.
