Mark Rylance and Louis Jenkins' new comic play Nice Fish to transfer to the West End. 8 July 2016

Sonia Friedman Productions is delighted to announce the West End transfer of Mark Rylance and Louis Jenkins’ critically-acclaimed new comic play Nice Fish. Direct from sold out seasons at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University in Cambridge  and St Ann’s Warehouse in New York, Academy and Bafta Award-winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, The BFG, Jerusalem, Farinelli and the King) will return to the West End to perform in the production, directed by Claire van Kampen (Farinelli and the King).                                                           

The West End production will open in November 2016 for a strictly limited season at the Harold Pinter Theatre, with a press night on Friday 25 November. Tickets go on sale to priority bookers today and the Box Office opens for general on-sale on Sunday 10 July at 10am.

In a unique collaboration with critically-acclaimed Minnesotan contemporary prose poet Louis Jenkins, Mark Rylance draws on his teenage years in the frozen winters and culture of the American Midwest. This beguiling new play follows an ice fishing expedition where the ordinary and extraordinary collide in a sublimely playful and profound way.
