The open ocean, 1974. Production on "Jaws" is delayed…again. The film’s lead actors -- theatre veteran Robert Shaw and young Hollywood hotshots, Richard Dreyfuss and Roy Scheider -- are crammed into a too-small boat, entirely at the mercy of foul weather and a faulty mechanical co-star. Alcohol flows, egos collide, and tempers flare on a chaotic voyage that just might lead to cinematic magic…if it doesn’t sink them all.

For The Record:

"The Shark is Broken" had its World Premiere at the Edingburgh Fringe in 2019, followed by a run on the West End in 2021...
