Cruise Control is a bittersweet, sometimes dark comedy which revolves around husband and wife Ken and Liz, a couple in their 50s/60s, who, after some traumatic times, find themselves (in more ways than one) on an Adriatic cruise.
Their roles are large with a good deal of stage time. In addition there are another couple, Charles and Fiona, who are their rather snooty ‘cruise neighbours’. They appear briefly in 3 or 4 moments in the play. There is also a tannoy announcer who is never actually seen (lines would not need to be learned!), an entertainments officer in one scene, a beauty therapist cameo, and a non-speaking ‘deck jogger’.
Obviously Ken and Liz are the key roles. The other six could be doubled quite easily if necessary.
