The play arrives in Brooklyn following an acclaimed run at The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University last month. The New York premiere will officially open Feb. 21 and runs through March 27.
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 production notes. "A play woven together from the acclaimed prose poems of Louis Jenkins, Nice Fish reflects nature with a wry surreality."
