Due to high demand, Nice Fish is now booking at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theatre until 11 February 2017.
Mark Rylance and Louis Jenkin’s play is transferring from New York to the West End from 15 November 2016 and tickets for the newly announced extension are on sale from today (16 September).
The production, directed by Claire van Kampen, sees Mark Rylance drawing upon his teenage years in the frozen winters and culture of the American Midwest. This new play follows a fishing expedition, with the ordinary meeting the extraordinary.
On a frozen Minnesota lake, the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It’s the end of the fishing season and on the frostbitten, unforgiving landscape, two old friends are out on the ice and they are angling for something big, something down there that is pure need, something that, had it the wherewithal, would swallow them whole.
Nice Fish features a set design by Todd Rosenthal, costumes by Ilona Somogyi, lighting by Japhy Weideman, sound by Scott W. Edwards and music by Claire van Kampen.
