Sticks and Stones

Explores the corrosive effects of workplace bullying in this taut three-part psychological thriller starring Ken Nwosu.

Set amid the competitive world of sales, the drama centres 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 humour with intense drama, Sticks and Stones is a timely and globally relevant exploration of the potential cruelty of commercial competition and its impact on our psychology and humanity.

As the series begins, Thomas Benson is a Sales Associate at Clayton Office Solutions in Reading where he lives with his wife Jess, a nurse, and their young daughter, Millie, who was born deaf.

He's good at his job and feels respected by his colleagues Andy, Isobel and Becky and his boss Chris Carter.

Thomas and the team give a pitch presentation to Janice Lancing and her team at Murray Technology but when the presentation goes badly wrong, Thomas panics and faints in front of everyone.

The team has lost a potentially large contract and with it the lucrative bonuses that would have been coming their way.

The team seem to lay the blame firmly at Thomas's door. Is it his imagination or are his colleagues now out to get him?

How will Thomas react when his work life is threatened?
