On a frozen Minnesota lake, the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It's the end of the fishing season, and two old friends are out on the ice, angling for something big - something down there that is pure need. Something that might just swallow them whole. Nice Fish is a sublimely reflective, profound, and funny play. The LA Weekly called this Interact production, "Brilliant ... stunning ...," and the LA Daily News said, "Expect to be hooked!" The Hollywood Reporter said, "Nice Fish is a great catch!"

Scenic design is by Evan Bartoletti, lighting design is by Carol Doehring, and costume design is by Carolyn Mazuca. Puppet design is by Stevie Anne Nemazee, prop design is by Eric Babb, and the stage manager is Gina De Luca. Nice Fish is produced for Interact Theatre Company by Keaton Shapiro.
