ALL AT SEA
Cast 3 male 3 female
When Graham and Annette, and Gus and Maria, the two winning couples of Meteor Television’s popular lovers’ reunion programme, Star-Crossed Sweethearts, head off for the romantic cruise they’ve been promised on board the Sovereign, little do they realise what adventures lie in wait over the horizon. Unknown to the couples, the “cruise” turns out to be artificially staged for the cameras on a moored ship, which the inept Meteor TV researcher Debbie has been put in charge of organising. It’s not long before Debbie’s own “ex” Marcus appears under innocent enough circumstances, and while some old flames prepare to rekindle, others soon look positively ready to explode. The situation rapidly accelerates when they realise that the ship is no longer moored and is drifting helplessly into the English Channel shipping lanes, endangering everybody in this black comedy of romance and rust on the high seas.
