Made in partnership with Attenborough Arts, Theatre Deli, Nonsuch Studios and havoc, Withered Optimism tells the story of a put-upon protagonist stretched to breaking point, then spun around by the violent centrifugal force of the corporate world.

 

When one day

the pressure gets too much,

his sanity snaps

and

he is catapulted off on a hallucinatory odyssey among the flotsam and jetsam of late capitalism.
