Shipwreck Productions Presents LATE NIGHT FISH 

A tragically comedic piece following two menacing gangsters disposing of a body in a nearby lake. What could possibly go wrong?

Following their initial success at the Worcestershire Theatre Festival 2020 and 2021, Shipwreck Productions will present, for the first time professionally, their debut, award-winning, two-hander, one act, tragicomedy 'Late Night Fish'.

Michael and Tony are in the "Waste Management Business". They've been asked to dispose of a large "package" in a nearby lake with no questions asked. Join us on a tale of missing boats, existential questions, and gangster films as we take you on a trip into the average day of a "Union Representative".

Inspired by Harold Pinter's 'The Dumb Waiter', Winner of the Worcestershire Theatre Festival 2020 and 2021 and recipient of the Geoffrey Whitworth Trophy for New Writing 2020, 'Late Night Fish' follows gangsters extraordinaire, Michael and Tony, as they are tasked with disposing a dead body in a nearby lake resulting in both hilarious and menacing results.
