SOAPBOX RACER – a new play by Ben Schwarz

Ben Schwarz presents Soapbox Racer - a new play about love, loss and connecting with your inner daredevil.

When the love of your life dumps you for your best friend, do you sit down and take it? No! You race down a hill, in a matchbox on wheels, and invite them to watch! That'll definitely win both of them back!

Won't it?

Soapbox Racer is the world premiere of a new monologue play by Northern writer Ben Schwarz (LIVE Theatre, White Bear). Directed by Louisa Sanfey (’The War on Terry’ - nominated for Best Actor, Buxton Fringe 2018) and performed by Grace Cordell (’The Crucible’ at The Royal Exchange, ‘Alcatraz’ at New Diorama). Join us for a comic look at what happens when you build a soapbox car to win back your ex, but inadvertently connect with your inner daredevil along the road!
