One Night in Bath – The Movie - Currently in Development
Filming: Sept/Oct 2019

One Night In Bath

Love in Hot Water

A romantic comedy set in the beautiful city of Bath, where our twenty-something hero meticulously plans
and executes a grandiose marriage proposal. However, instead of sweeping his prospective fiancé off her
feet, he inadvertently engineers the worst day of her life, causing her emotional and physical trauma, public humiliation and an aeronautical near-death experience.

One Night In Bath is a big, expansive, feel-good romp, with a thoroughly modern twist. Sharply written, with a great story and engaging characters, it’s an emotionally-sparkling, uplifting and eccentric British romantic comedy with global appeal.
