THE UGLY ... DUCKLING?
"The Ugly ... Duckling?" is my spin on the classic fairy tale "The Ugly Duckling", by Hans Christian Andersen. I've always been very interested in the story for the way that it deals with issues like social gatekeeping and bullying, and in my adaptation I wanted to call more direct attention to them while also injecting a particularly pathetic breed of humor. It was a lot of fun to replace the original baby swan protagonist with a baby platypus and just see where the story went as a result.
