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 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. 

Yellowfin is at Southwark Playhouse from 13 October - 6 November.
