Leyla Josephine is hopeless. She’s had enough. She's been staying in bed all day, refusing to watch the news, eating full Viennettas at 1pm.

She’s been struggling through these difficult times.

Hopeless examines human suffering through quick-fire poetry and dark comedy. Leyla asks whether we can really make a difference or, if in fact, everything is broken beyond repair.

Watch as Leyla Josephine tries to find hope in the utterly hopeless.

Support poets to be announced. Watch this space.

Note: Contains strong language and adult themes
