Paraphrase Productions proudly presents Nice Fish. From Mark Rylance and the works of prose poet Louis Jenkins is a story of seeking something that can swallow a person whole. Two old friends go ice fishing and discuss life, regret, love, and the tranquility of being in nature. According to the director, Alex Thibeau, this play encapsulates “the powerful experience of reflecting on a person’s life and the combination of humor with prose poetry that makes this play an instant classic."
