‘The Shark is Broken’ to open at Ambassadors Theatre in October
New dates have been found for the production, previously postponed due to the pandemic.
After The Shark is Broken was forced to postpone its West End premiere, new dates have been found for the Jaws drama. The Shark is Broken will now run at the Ambassadors Theatre from 9 October - 15 Jan. 2022.
The Shark is Broken is written by Jaws star Robert Shaw’s son Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon. It’s inspired by the creation of Jaws, following three cast members stuck on a boat while filming has stalled. Luck begins to turn though when three great white sharks appear out of the water.
Ian Shaw will star in his play, with direction by Guy Masterson. Further cast and creatives are to be announced at a later date.
The Shark is Broken was first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019. It was originally due to make its West End premiere as part of Sonia Friedman Productions season of work at the Ambassadors Theatre, including Baby Reindeer.
