Imagine One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest adapted by the kids from Skins, but worse. Hysteria is the order of the day when suicidal posh nob nihilist Julian gets sectioned. Stock characters are wheeled out, while Oliver James' Affluenza is filtered through playwright James King's adolescent script. At one point, one of the unconvincing barmy army emotes, 'You think this is entertainment? This is black comedy, morbid, shit.' It's hard to disagree.
