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.
Mark Rylance, in a unique collaboration with critically-acclaimed Minnesotan contemporary prose poet Louis Jenkins, draws on his teenage years in the frozen winters and culture of the American Midwest. Nice Fish is an ice fishing expedition where the ordinary and extraordinary collide. The full New York cast will transfer to London for this limited season. Ron (Mark Rylance) and Erik (Jim Lichtscheidl) play the odd couple, whose ordinary lives are comically exposed in this sublimely playful, profound and very funny play. Kayli Carter, Bob Davis and Raye Birk join them on their journey across the pond to perform in Nice Fish at the Harold Pinter theatre this winter.
