Birmingham-based company Powerhouse Theatre is to present a live Zoom play, White Noise, with a percentage of the profits from ticket sales going to LGBT+ arts charity the Raze Collective.

Powerhouse is “dedicated to creating bold, brave and bossy theatre” and “championing new work by and for womxn and queer people”.

White Noise is written and directed by the company’s co-creative director, Mo Gearing. It follows the unlikely friendship of a lonely sex addict MP and a student sex worker as they navigate the trials and tribulations thrown their way during a world pandemic. The cast comprises Paul Westwood as David and Danielle J Gearing as Elise.

The play will be performed on Friday 28 August at 7:30PM. Tickets are available at the Eventbrite web site.
