After a career in the CIA, which has led to a downward emotional spiral, he finds himself on a park bench, which happens to be the home of his older brother Crumb, who was also once a CIA operative and Duck‘s colleague. Crumb lost faith in the system, leaving his younger brother to kill for reasons of state while he, Crumb, dropped out of society. The play is an exploration of Duck’s path, from faithfully patriotic to psychically distressed and unmoored. This is a dark comedy exploring who, exactly, lurks behind America's faceless "security apparatus," and the toll it takes on their personal lives. Duck questions not only America's foreign policy, but also the individuals who implement it.
