Released for International Women’s Day
“Wired, claustrophobic and gorgeously dark in its humour.”
To mark International Women’s Day we are thrilled to present Sweatbox. Recorded by an all female cast in honour of IWD, Sweatbox is a darkly comic look at society’s fascination with celebrity.
The original drama centres on main protagonist Zoe (Fay Downie) and the disturbing Kerry (Lexy Howe). Each week Zoe treats herself to a relaxing sauna, until one fateful evening she meets Kerry, a woman more obsessed with celebrity life than her own, and that relaxation is thrown into turmoil. Kerry is harbouring a dark secret but will it force Zoe to face truths of her own?
Written by actress Lexy Howe, Sweatbox is a showcase of female creativity developed to highlight the achievements of The Wireless Theatre Company’s female cast members.
