The first preview of The Wild Duck at the Almeida Theatre has been cancelled due to cast illness.
Director Robert Icke’s adaptation of the Ibsen play was due to have its first public performance tonight (October 15), ahead of a planned press night on October 23.
However, the London theatre has cancelled the performance, claiming cast illness is to blame.
