Kate McLennan The Duck's Nuts

Review by Elise Faulkner

Kate McLennan is at the age where all of her friends have their lives in order. But McLennan doesn't have all her ducks in a row.

The Duck's Nuts is a fun show about growing up in Western Victoria, feeling society's pressure to get married and have children, and checking the oil and water in your car.

McLennan's personable style is great for storytelling. While her entire approach is greatly relatable, the performance really comes alive when McLennan is impersonating her parents, who both come across as loveable, albeit a little eccentric, characters. The story takes some unexpected turns and punchlines come out of nowhere, keeping it engaging for the whole hour.

The Duck's Nuts leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy. It's a great night out.
