    “On a frozen Minnesota lake, the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It’s the end of the fishing season, and on the frostbitten, unforgiving landscape, two old friends are out on the ice, angling for something big – something down there that is pure need, something that, had it the wherewithal, would swallow them whole.

    “Mark Rylance, in a unique collaboration with critically-acclaimed Minnesotan contemporary prose poet Louis Jenkins, draws on his teenage years in the frozen winters and culture of the American Midwest. Nice Fish is an ice fishing expedition where the ordinary and extraordinary collide. The full New York cast will transfer to London for this limited season. Ron (Mark Rylance) and Erik (Jim Lichtscheidl) play the odd couple whose ordinary lives are comically exposed in this sublimely playful, profound and very funny play. Kayli Carter, Bob Davis and Raye Birk join them on their journey across the pond to perform at the Harold Pinter Theatre this winter.

    Direct from a sold-out season in New York, Academy– and Bafta Award–winner Mark Rylance returns to the West End.” – from the ATG Tickets website

    “Deliriously funny. Claire van Kampen’s cleverly staged production is a knockout” – Variety

    “Wonderful performances. Expertly directed. Bewitching.” – New York Times

    “A chance to see a great actor like Mark Rylance cutting loose. A whimsical, ultimately resonant portrait of lost souls waiting to hook or be hooked.” – Time Out NY

    Please book your own seat direct with the theatre. If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number (and whether tables, stalls, dress circle, royal circle or balcony) in the comments below, for group members who may want to book a neighbouring seat. My seat is Royal Circle C7.

    We will have dinner before the play, at 6 pm at Kanada-Ya (Haymarket) on Panton Street. We will stay on to have drinks after the performance, either in the theatre bar or at the Tom Cribb pub nearby. This event is for people who will be joining us for dinner or for post-theatre drinks (or, even better, both). If you won’t be staying, or if you only have time to stop briefly, please don’t RSVP.

    You will need to note your confirmation number (from your booking e-mail) dinner/drinks plans in your RSVP. This is essential for every RSVP. If you forget to do it at the time, you can add the missing details at any time by re-RSVPing and entering them when you do.

    I've placed a limit of 15 attendees on this event, to keep numbers manageable. Because of the limit, it’s important that the people who RSVP do come – otherwise they’re excluding people who would have come.

    In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance.
