    Directed by Anna Herrmann and originally conceived by Imogen Ashby

    “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.

    Tickets are free but booking is required.
