Behind-the-scenes footage has been released for The Shark is Broken, which is set to arrive in the West End from 9 October at the Ambassadors Theatre.

The critically-acclaimed smash-hit previously enjoyed a run at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe, and will now play in the West End for a strictly limited season until 15 January 2022.

Co-written by Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, this funny and moving play takes audiences behind the scenes of hit film JAWS.

Cast includes Ian Shaw (War Horse) as his father Robert Shaw, Liam Murray Scott as Richard Dreyfuss and Demetri Goritsas (Black Mirror, Netflix) as Roy Scheider.

Cape Cod, 1974: shooting on JAWS has stalled. The 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 Shark is Broken is written by Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, directed by Guy Masterson, set and costume are by Duncan Henderson, lighting is by Jon Clark, sound and music are by Adam Cork and video is by Nina Dunn. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG. Hair, Wigs and Makeup is by Carole Hancock, associate direction is from Martha Geelan, costume associate is Deborah Andrews and associate lighting design is by Simisola Majekodunmi.
