Alex DiMaggio has made the most important discovery of their career. The identity of the Blue Lagoon statuette, one of the 21st century’s greatest archaeological mysteries, has finally been revealed. Tomorrow, Alex will unveil their discovery at an exclusive event within the prestigious Blast Museum to a select entourage of VIPs, reporters, and historical experts. Years of diligent work are finally paying off. That is, until Alex’ old friend, Susan, comes to call. Now the famed Blue Lagoon is shattered to pieces, and it’s up to Alex and Susan to try and replace it. And all the while they’ll have to dodge overbearing bosses, psychotic security guards, and a litany of ridiculously demanding VIPs. Will they get away with it? Or be strung up as yet another one of the museum’s artifacts, caught in the spotlight and judged by the world.
Based on farcical British comedies like Fawlty Towers, Blue Lagoon is a homage to the creative style of playwrights like Peter Schaffer, showcasing two character’s descent as they dig deeper and deeper into their own lies in the attempt to save their skin.
