The production runs in the West End for a strictly limited season from 9 October 2021 – 15 January 2022.

A new image and video has been released today for The Shark is Broken which opens at the Ambassadors Theatre from 9 October 2021. Co-written by Robert Shaw's son Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, this brilliantly funny play, directed by Guy Masterson, reveals the hilarious and moving behind-the-scenes drama on Steven Spielberg's blockbuster movie JAWS.

Ian Shaw (War Horse and Common, National Theatre) plays his father Robert Shaw alongside Liam Murray Scott as Richard Dreyfuss (reprising the role he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019), and Demetri Goritsas (ear for eye, Royal Court; Black Mirror, Netflix) as Roy Scheider.

Cape Cod, 1974: shooting on 'Jaws' has stalled. The film's lead actors - Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss - are stuck on a boat, at the mercy of foul weather and a faulty mechanical co-star. Awash with alcohol and ambition, three hammered sharks start to bare their teeth...

The Shark is Broken is written by Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, directed by Guy Masterson, set and costume are by Duncan Henderson, lighting is by Jon Clark, sound and music are by Adam Cork and video is by Nina Dunn. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG.

Hair, Wigs and Makeup is by Carole Hancock, the Associate Director will be Martha Geelan, the Costume Associate will be Deborah Andrews and the Associate Lighting Designer will be Simisola Majekodunmi.

The production runs in the West End for a strictly limited season from 9 October 2021 - 15 January 2022. Press performances are 19 - 21 October 7.30pm. Reviews are under embargo until midnight on 21 October.
