Mark Rylance brings his critically-acclaimed comedy to the West End this November.
Yes, you’re herring us correctly: Nice Fish, a new comedy by Academy and BAFTA Award winner Mark Rylance and Louis Jenkins, will transfer from Broadway to London’s Harold Pinter Theatre later this year. Telling the story of two friends fishing on a frozen Minnesota lake, the play is directed by Claire van Kampen, who recently directed Rylance in the Olivier Award nominated play, Farinelli And The King.
Featuring the entire New York cast, the play will run from November for a limited season until January 2017. For those eager to get a seat, the show is offering free tickets in private boxes to audience members dressed as fish or fisherman available on the night on a first come first served basis. An opportunity not to be missed, this promotion offers reel potential for all aquatic enthusiasts. Only one free ticket is available per person, but don’t be shellfish, just get a friend to dress up too. You’re sure to have a whale of a time.
Nice Fish runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 15 November to 21 January 2017. The show will take plaice following the end of Sunny Afternoon’s residency at the venue, for which you can buy your tickets from us here.
