Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Lynn Nottage’s Sweat centers on a group of friends at their go-to bar in Reading, Pennsylvania. In the year 2000, layoffs and lockouts threaten their factory floor jobs, thrusting them into a bitter fight for survival. Produced across the country to critical and popular acclaim, Sweat considers the effects of America’s economic decline and deindustrialization alongside a heart-wrenching examination of friendship, race, class, and trust within this community of family and friends.

This production contains strong language, simulated drug and alcohol use, and depicted violence.

Sweat is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
