ROTTEN is a social observation of the economic and social crisis that is happening in Britain right now; a rollercoaster Comedy-Thriller, filled with hilarious and scary twists and turns you would never expect!

Hitchcock meets Lord of the Flies in this exciting new comedy-thriller by emerging writer Josie White.

Three young, regional actresses: Saoirse, Coco and Sonia are struggling to survive in London. Their shared dream is dwindling away quicker than their bank balances. But who needs electricity? Or Netflix? Every night, through their grotty living room window, the antiheroes have a front row seat to observe the life of Instagram ‘celebrity’ Iris Montague-Willis.

When the girls spot the newly engaged Iris in a compromising position with a woman, they decide to film it, and are later persuaded by Sonia’s on-again-off-again, drug dealer boyfriend Ross to blackmail Iris. But their scheming soon spirals into complete anarchy.
