Audience Advisory

This production features strong language and mature content. Recommended for ages 14+.

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…

Nominated for Best Comedy Play at the 2022 Olivier Awards, The Shark is Broken received both critical and audience acclaim when it ran at the Ambassadors Theatre, West End from October 2021 – February 2022. Co-written by Robert Shaw’s son Ian Shaw (who also stars in the show) and Joseph Nixon, this brilliantly funny play, directed by Guy Masterson, reveals the hilarious and moving behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
