Are we here?
Oi! What’s goin’ on?
Anyone there?

We’re at HMP Bronzefield. They do this. Stop the van outside the gates then leave you sat there like battery hens.

Travelling across the UK, Chloë Moss’s Sweatbox invites you to enter the back of a prison van in which three women share their stories of arrival and anticipation as they are transported from court to prison, from prison to prison, from prison to court.


“Like so much of this phenomenal company’s activity, it’s vital, humane work with real theatrical heft.” The Stage on Sweatbox at Latitude

“[An] amazing piece, immersive. It takes you on a journey and you share an experience with those three women.” Audience member
