You can get free tickets to Mark Rylance's new play if you dress up as a fish or fisherman, just for the halibut

Mark Rylance is returning to the West End stage – and fans will be able to see him for free if they dress up as fish.

Nice Fish, the critically acclaimed comedy byMark and prose poet Louis Jenkins, will have a limited run from November at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre after a successful season in New York.

Drawing on the Oscar-winning actor’s teenage years in the frozen winters of the American Midwest, Nice Fish follows two old friends, Ron (Mark) and Erik (Jim Lichtscheidl) whose lives are turned upside down during an ice-fishing trip in Minnesota.

For those keen to hook a ticket, each day four audience members who come dressed as fish or fishermen – including a rod – will get a free seat in a private box, available on a first come first served basis from 6pm on the night of the production.

Over 100 tickets will also be available for just £15 for every performance.

The play will be directed by Claire van Kampen who was behind Mark’s last West End appearance in Olivier Award-nominated Farinelli and the King.
