Synopsis


Matt Parvin's blistering new drama tests the limits of retribution and the power of social status at university.


“You've got to throw yourself in, yeah?


Do you see?


Have to throw yourself right in, whatever that entails.”


Freshers' term.


Greg has taken to university life like a duck to water.


Kasper is struggling to fit in.


Summoned to a mediation session with Kasper and the college welfare officer to discuss an accusation of plagiarism, Greg deftly argues his way out of trouble.


But when the allegations evolve into something altogether more damaging, for how long can Greg remain untouchable?


Gentlemen examines what happens when culture turns toxic, and how a fear of not fitting in risks everyone losing out.
