Exclusive Sticks & Stones Clip From BritBox’s Psychological Drama
ComingSoon.net has an exclusive clip from BritBox’s original three-part psychological drama Sticks & Stones, created and written by Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, Press) and starring Ken Nwosu (Killing Eve, Christopher Robin). You can check out the clip below!
Set amid the competitive world of sales, the drama centers on the personal and professional life of Thomas Benson (Nwosu), a hard-working father and husband. Reliant on bonuses and winning pitches, Thomas often finds himself leading the team when trying to secure new business. However, when he freezes during a pitch, the fall out is monumental.
Determined to prove himself, Thomas goes to increasingly desperate lengths to remain successful. But, as he does, he begins to feel undermined, under attack, and out of control. Has he lost his confidence and is just being paranoid or is his own team, and maybe the wider world, now out to get him? Blending dark humor with intense drama, Sticks & Stones is a globally relevant exploration of the potential cruelty of commercial competition and its impact on our psychology and humanity.
Directed by Julia Ford and produced by Colin Wratten, this contemporary workplace drama also stars BAFTA-winner Ben Miller, Sean Sagar, Susannah Fielding, Ritu Arya, and Alexandra Roach.
Sticks & Stones is set to premiere on June 9 with a new episode running every Tuesday for the next three weeks.
