"Director Sarah McLane serves up a beguiling theatrical puzzler boasting performances which belie the description ‘amateur.’" - David Whetstone, Only In Newcastle


This is the first play in our new Studio Theatre. The venue, along with our new foyer, is wheelchair accessible. If you wish to book a wheelchair space, please give the Box Office a call as these cannot be bought online.

Otherwise, all of the performances are now full. Any returned tickets will be put back on sale as and when so it is worth checking back.


On a moonless night when the sea trout are ready to run, a man brings his new girlfriend to the remote cabin where he has come for the fly-fishing since he was a boy. But she’s not the only woman he has ever brought here …

This bewitching story from the writer of the award-winning smash hits Jerusalem and The Ferryman has been likened to a subtly crafted piece of chamber music. Teasing, haunting and sleek, it’s a play about the nature of relationships; but which has at its heart a mystery as glinting and elusive as a fish.

Audiences are advised that this production includes the gutting of a dead fish.

This is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
