Martha’s Vineyard, 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 critically-acclaimed smash-hit play, The Shark is Broken reveals the hilarious and moving behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, Jaws.
Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
Event image: The sun shines on the surface of the water and, up from the depths, the head of a shark appears, its mouth open to reveal a row of chipped teeth. The shark head forms the letter A in the title, The Shark is Broken. a partially broken wheel forms the O. Above are the words, by Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon.
