The reviews are in for The Shark is Broken in London’s West End, which opened October 21 at the Ambassador Theatre.
Written by Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, the play follows the three stars on the set of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws as they deal with foul weather and their temperamental co-star: a faulty mechanical shark named Bruce.
Shaw stars as his father, Robert Shaw, who played Quint in the movie, alongside Demetri Goritsas as Roy Scheider and Liam Murray Scott as Richard Dreyfuss.

Guy Masterson directs the play, with set and costume design by Duncan Henderson, lighting design by Jon Clark, sound design and original music by Adam Cork, and video design by Nina Dunn.
The Shark is Broken originally premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. Sonia Friedman Productions produces the West End staging.
