The Shark is Broken Behind the scenes on Jaws on the London stage

In 1974 in the waters off of Martha’s Vineyard, 3 men sat trapped on the Orca wishing they had a bigger boat. Amidst never-ending delays, bad weather, studio politics and a constantly broken mechanical co-star, Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider, and Richard Dreyfuss wasted away their days filming Jaws. As the timeline and budget stretched insecurities met with inflated egos in a shallow pool of rivalry and alcohol. Take a peek below deck at this hilarious insider fish tale. Written by Robert Nixon and Ian Shaw, son of Robert Shaw, inspired by his father’s journals, The Shark is Broken offers a unique look at the making off one of Hollywood's greatest summer smash-hits of all time.
