WellBless at Theatre Works
Wellness guru, Juniper, is hosting a conference with her fitness-obsessed sister, Ava. With sold-out sessions offering everything from clean eating, Polga™ (yoga-styled pole dancing), vaginal steaming and crystal healing, and millions of Instagram followers flocking to see them, the sisters look set to take their brand WellBless – wellness when you are #blessed – to entirely new heights.
But when Instafamous cancer-patient Maha – who has rejected traditional treatments to follow Juniper’s wellness program – dies onsite, Juniper’s empire looks set to unravel. With the discovery of Maha’s body meaning the end of their incoming millions, the sisters work together with their panel of ‘experts’ to concoct a story about Maha’s complicity in her own death by choosing the path of chemotherapy and filling her body with ‘toxins’.
With journalist Mindy Flores asking all the questions Juniper should be asking about her own program, the sisters must work quickly to hide the truth. This darkly satirical comedy examines the parasitic world of wellness, a trillion dollar industry that preys on vulnerable women.
