Yellowfin, by Marek Horn- 13 OCT – 6 NOV 2021

“There were fish,
And then there weren’t fish.
Simple as that.”

“the climactic moments are superbly well constructed, leading to a delicious denouement.” ★★★★ WhatsOnStage
“this is a playwright to watch.” ★★★★ Broadway World
“darkly believable” ★★★★ TheReviewsHub

“Directed by Ed Maddens, the characters’ unravelling feels completely natural. “ ★★★ The Guardian

Nobody knows where the fish went, and nobody knows why the fish went – but ever since they did, things just haven’t been the same.

In a committee room on Capitol Hill, three senators have a job to do: they must question a man on charges of trading rare marine commodities, and they must find out what he knows.

Politics and the planet collide in a fiercely original new play by Marek Horn, whose debut Wild Swimming took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm in 2019. Ed Madden (Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons) directs this bitingly funny exploration of the limits of science, the power of myths, and the things we can’t control.

Please note that Yellowfin contains smoking and flashing lights.
