Nice Fish
Created by two-time Tony Award-winning actor Mark Rylance in collaboration with Duluth poet Louis Jenkins, a master of prose poetry whose work is regularly featured on A Prairie Home Companion, this world premiere features original music by Claire van Kampen (Peer Gynt). 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. .
