Tony and Olivier Award-winning actor Mark Rylance and poet Louis Jenkins present the world premiere of Nice Fish, which began performances April 6 at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis.



Rylance (Jerusalem, La Bete, Boeing-Boeing) stars as Ron in a cast that also features Jim Lichtscheidl (Arms and the Man, The 39 Steps) as Eric, Emily Swallow (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) as Flo, Chris Carlson (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, God of Carnage) as Wayne, Bob Davis (Tales from Hollywood, Arsenic and Old Lace) as DNR Officer and Tyson Forbes (Peer Gynt, 1776) as Wainwright.

According to the Guthrie, "Nice Fish centers on two men who have gone ice fishing on the last day of the season; the ice is melting and the DNR is watching. They are hoping for something essential, immortal, when a construction worker roars across the ice on his snowmobile, spear, dynamite and fancy dress in hand! And the last blizzard of the season is about to begin..."

Here's a look at the production:
