Prosperity is a series of four dramas for television from director Lenny Abrahamson and writer Mark O'Halloran, the team behind Adam & Paul and the award winning feature film Garage. Prosperity tells four powerful, moving and funny stories set on the same day, each episode examining a day in the life of a single character on the fringes of society.
We follow Stacey (Siobhan Shanahan), 17, a single mother, as she wastes time, pinning her hopes on a relationship that's going nowhere; Gavin (Shane Thornton), 14, bullied and bullying, as he takes out his aggression on his best friend; Georgie (Gary Egan), 42, who is separated and struggling with a drink problem, as he tries to gain the respect of his young son and Pala (Diveen Henry), 31, an African immigrant, separated from her child, as her hunger for human contact becomes increasingly desperate.
