The social fabric has finally torn. Airports are closed, roads are blocked. Now even the 1% need to seek asylum...
Four obscenely rich and obnoxious members of the elite pay through the nose to join an exclusive party on the last ship leaving London. They stay alive using the only things they know – money, sex and madness. But the ship is sailing in the wrong direction. They don’t know each other. They don’t know the Captain. They don’t know what the hell is going on. Things soon start to descend into chaos... and in this twisting tale, progress can sometimes be a trap!
Expect elegant glamour, brutal food poisoning, cyborg finance, and a delicious bull testicle meringue.
International Waters comes from multi-award-winning writer and director David Leddy, who has been called a ‘maverick’ (Guardian), a ‘genius’ (Scotsman), an ‘innovator’ (Times) and an ‘institution’ (Independent).
