Free VIP tickets to the latest Mark Rylance play? That might sound fishy but, when it comes to theatre oppor-tuna-ties, we're not sure you cod do much better than this.

Nice Fish is the new comic play by much-acclaimed Rylance (star of Jerusalem, The Bridge Of Spies and The BFG amongst others) and the American prose poet Louis Jenkins. Appearing at Harold Pinter Theatre from 15 November until 11 February 2017, it has a story which follows an ice fishing expedition where the ordinary and extraordinary collide.

Here's the preamble: "On a frozen Minnesota lake, the ice is beginning to creak and groan. It’s the end of the fishing season and on the frostbitten, unforgiving landscape, two old friends are out on the ice and they are angling for something big, something down there that is pure need, something that, had it the wherewithal, would swallow them whole."

What's the catch?

Tickets are now on sale but those hankering to see the action for free from a tasty plaice, sorry, place should read on.

On every night of the production, four complimentary tickets will be available for a seat in the private box. To get your claws on these priceless pearls, all you have to do is dress up as a fish or a fisherman/woman (complete with reel) and turn up before the show.

Tickets are one per person and they will be handed out on a first-come, first served basis from 6pm on the night of the performance (1.30pm for matinees).

If fancy dress isn't your thing, there are 100 tickets for each performance available for £15 or less. No, we're not squidding! (enough with the fish puns please - Ed.)

You can trawl for more information and tickets on the official website. (You're fired - Ed.)
