Synopsis


The Peaceful Defeat make their Vault Festival debut with Alex Benjamin's new play 'Cotton,' a dizzying, manic trip into the world of professional gaming.


"What if, right, what if instead of making our home from concrete -

What if we made it from cotton?


Feathers?


Liquorice?


What if we made it from code?"


When their team disbands after a devastating loss, three professional gamers are thrown back into a life that never made sense to them.


They've got to make it in the real world - but how much of a 'real world' is there left for them?


Fresh from a five-star run at the Camden Fringe and a stop-over in their home town of Exeter, The Peaceful Defeat are ready for their biggest performances yet at London's VAULT Festival.


Powered by a propulsive jazz soundtrack and the vibrant performances of a young cast, it's a show that draws audiences into an unfamiliar corner of the modern world and then watches it fall apart.
