By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Nathan Henry

"Sweat" won the Pulitzer Prize in 2017 as well as three Tony nominations and is written by one of America's most important playwrights.

In one of the poorest cities in America, Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of down-and-out factory workers struggle to keep their present lives in balance, ignorant of the financial devastation looming in their near future.

Based on Nottage's extensive research and interviews with residents of Reading, "Sweat" is a topical reflection of the present and poignant outcome of America's economic decline.

"From first moments to last, this compassionate but clear-eyed play throbs with heartfelt life, with characters as complicated as any you'll encounter at the theater today, and with a nifty ticking time bomb of a plot." — The New York Times.

This play contains mature themes. Parental discretion is advised.
