    Written by Rylance and Louis Jenkins, Nice Fish also stars Jim Lichtscheidl, with directed by Claire Van Kampen. 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 will be the first time that Mark Rylance has appeared on the West End stage since winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor earlier this year, for his portrayal of Rudolf Abel in Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies. Rylance most recently appeared in Farinelli and the King at the Duke of York's Theatre in 2015.
