The Shark is Broken – Broadway

Martha’s Vineyard, 1974: Shooting on Jaws has stalled. The film’s lead actors – Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss – are stuck on a boat, at the mercy of foul weather and a faulty mechanical co-star. Awash with alcohol and ambition, three hammered sharks start to bare their teeth…  

Nominated for Best Comedy Play at the 2022 Olivier Awards and co-written by Robert Shaw’s son Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, this brilliantly funny play, directed by Guy Masterson, reveals the hilarious and moving behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.

Ian Shaw stars as his father Robert Shaw. Further casting to be announced.
