For September’s Playset of the Month we are proud to present Transatlantic!
The time is 1932, the place? Somewhere in the mid-Atlantic aboard the luxury cruise ship Leviathan, a week out of Southampton en route to New York. On this flagship cruiser’s maiden voyage, the Captain has been directed to quietly contend for the glorious Blue Riband – the accolade awarded to the fastest crossing of the Atlantic Ocean.
Topside, you enjoy a salty Gibson while pulling the heavy double wool of your coat closer to your body. Friends make merry with lively talk amongst themselves – it’s a din barely overheard above the hammering engine and thresh of the ship’s mighty propellers. Spray from the bow’s cleave manages to catch your cheek even this far aft. Your gaze draws across the dull, slate waters wondering at the marvel of it all: New beginnings? Maybe this time things will be different? Perhaps your dreams are within reach? What could possibly go wrong?
Written by E. Tage Larsen, Transatlantic draws inspiration from movies such as Bitter Moon, Titanic and Poseidon Adventure, among others. Gather your friends and some classy cocktails for an evening of fun below decks!
