The production is heading to the Ambassadors Theatre from the 9th October.

Sonia Friedman Productions has announced the full casting for the West End run of Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon’s The Shark is Broken, which heads to the Ambassadors Theatre next month.

As previously announced, Ian Shaw (War Horse and Common, National Theatre) will star as his father Robert Shaw. He will be joined by Liam Murray Scott as Richard Dreyfuss, and Demetri Goritsas (ear for eye, Royal Court; Black Mirror, Netflix) as Roy Scheider.

First seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019, The Shark is Broken reveals the behind-the-scenes drama on Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster movie Jaws.

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 production is 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. The Associate Director will be Martha Geelan, the Associate Lighting Designer will be Simisola Majekodunmi and the Costume Associate will be Deborah Andrews.

The Shark is Broken will play at the Ambassadors Theatre from the 9th October until the 15th January. To book tickets visit: Love Theatre.comTheatre Tickets Direct.co.ukLondon Theatre Direct, From the Box Office or Last Minute.com.
