The company includes Jenkins and Rylance, along with Jim Lichtscheidl, Bob Davis and Kayli Carter. 

"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," state A.R.T production notes. "A play woven together from the acclaimed prose poems of Louis Jenkins, Nice Fish reflects nature with a wry surreality."

Scenic design is by Todd Rosenthal, with costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Scott Edwards.
