About This Show

The Shark Is Broken, the brilliantly funny and deeply moving new play reveals the behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s all-time biggest blockbusters. Martha’s Vineyard, 1974: shooting on Jaws has stalled. The film’s lead actors – Robert Shaw, Roy Schneider 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. Starring Ian Shaw as his father Robert, The Shark Is Broken reveals the hilarious behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
