Jumping the Sharks

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Micheál Lovett 

  • Synopsis

    When the popularity of a hit television programme or star begins to wane, this is known, in American media parlance, as ‘jumping the shark’.

    Nick Cross is a tough-guy media executive with a taste for fast cars, deviant sex, booze and class A narcotics. The dead Cross addresses us from a purgatorial afterlife, rewinding and replaying the dissolute past that got him there.
