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.
