DON’T MISS THE BOAT!

FADE IN: The open ocean, 1974. Production on JAWS is delayed…again. The film’s lead actors—theater 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.

Opens: Friday, August 15, 2025
Closes: Sunday, August 17, 2025
Location: Marjorie Lyons Playhouse,
on the campus of Centenary College

“The script never lets interest lag over the play’s ninety, intermission-less minutes, the tension, humor, depth, silliness and horror coming like waves lapping the boat.” —Associated Press.

“THE SHARK IS BROKEN wittily excels not just as a clever time capsule, but as an examination of male bonding and competitiveness, ego, frailty, fame, and filmmaking.” —The Daily Beast.

“Laughs aplenty.” —Entertainment Weekly.
