8 June 2021 – 15 June 2021

Three women sit in a prison van outside HMP Bronzefield, each caught up in their own worlds as they anticipate what’s next. Sweatbox offers a glimpse into the experience of women as they are pulled away from their lives and transported to prison.

Chloë Moss’s highly original Clean Break play has toured the UK in a prison van since its premiere at the Latitude Festival in 2015 and has been transformed into an electric adaptation for the screen.

Sweatbox is directed by Anna Herrmann, performed by Clean Break Members Funke Adeleke, Jade Small, Posy Sterling and Sarah-Jane Dent and produced by Quiet Storm, founders of Create Not Hate.
