Are you ready to dive into a new play? The world premiere of marine play Yellowfin will open at Southwark Playhouse, with performances from 13 October - 6 November.Set in a committee room on Capitol Hill, Yellowfin follows three senators who investigate a man on suspicion of illegally trading rare marine commodities. The man believes he stopped trading years ago, but there's proof to suggest this isn't the case. Yellowfin is written by Marek Horn, who said that the play has now morphed thanks to...
"There were fish,
And then there weren't fish.
Simple as that."
Nobody knows where the fish went, and nobody knows why the fish went - but ever since they did, things just haven't been the same.
In a committee room on Capitol Hill, three senators have a job to do: they must question a man on charges of trading rare marine commodities, and they must find out what he knows.
Politics and the planet collide in a fiercely original new play by Marek Horn, whose debut Wild Swimming took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm in 2019. Ed Madden (Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons) directs this bitingly funny exploration of the limits of science, the power of myths, and the things we can't control.
