'Wrap Pack' 1-4-1 - one female, one male (Olivia, Colin)

Genre: Thriller with double-crossing and adventure, set in Canterbury of today. This is also entertaining and fast moving.

Jack - number three in the company, funny, a flawed hero, early 20s, street-wise, but not as clever and experienced and sophisticated as he thinks he is. He is constantly deflated in his chat-up lines.

Olivia - boss of a film locations-finding company - American - early 20s, very determined. (Make sure your actor does the American accent.)

Back story - these are scenes from the fourth episode of the soap. The two work for a location-finding film company, and they get caught up in the type of plot of the film they are working in pre-production for. This adventure turns out to be about the central prop of the film - the CHALICE OF THE BLACK PRINCE. The Black Prince is buried in Canterbury Cathedral. Jack and Olivia dig into the tomb and discover the real treasure to replace the lost prop! Like 'RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK', they are lost in the dangerous corridors and caves.

JACK: Charmed.

OLIVIA: (PANICKING, FREAKING OUT) I mean…What… What… It's just… Oh…

JACK: Easy. Look… Calm down. Now, do you have a light?

OLIVIA: Of course I do. There's no way… I mean, you think I'd come near you without a cigarette to calm my nerves?

JACK: Pass it here.

OLIVIA: You're not having a cigarette.

JACK: Relax. You wanna stay here in the dark? I'm lighting a torch.

OLIVIA: A good idea. Finally. Did it hurt?

JACK: (EXCITED, GIRLY) Wow. I… I mean (DEEPER, MASCULINE) Wow.

OLIVIA: This room Jack. It's all… I mean what is it… Is it Gold?

JACK: A gold room Liv… Now this is my kind of pad.

OLIVIA: Look… Over there…

JACK: The chalice!

OLIVIA: I don't believe it. Jack… Jack, what are you doing?

JACK: I'm taking this bad boy!

OLIVIA: But Jack, what if… It's a little too easy don't you think?

OLIVIA: (SCREAMS)

JACK: Run! This way!
