About This Show

On a lake in frozen Minnesota, the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It’s the end of the fishing season, and two men are out on the ice one last time, angling for answers to life’s larger questions. A play woven together from the acclaimed prose poems of Louis Jenkins, Nice Fish reflects nature with a wry surreality. As Jenkins writes, they “are after something big, something down there that is pure need, something that, had it the wherewithal, would swallow them whole.” Nice Fish brings a groundbreaking collaboration to the A.R.T. and St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.
