‘Yellowfin’ marine play to open at Southwark Playhouse
The new work will explore how individuals trade sealife.
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 present-day news stories. He said: "Whereas once it seemed like an outlandish dystopian satire, it has since morphed into something more closely resembling documentary theatre. It is a play which... I have long wanted to see on stage, so I'm delighted that it has found its moment."
The Yellowfin cast stars Nancy Crane, Nicholas Day, Joshua James and Beruce Khan. Ed Madden directs Yellowfin, with scenic and costume design by Anisha Fields, lighting design by Rajiv Pattani and sound design by Max Pappenheim.
