Sweat

by Lynn Nottage | Directed by Kimberly Senior
Extended by popular demand | Jan. 31 – Mar. 1, 2020
Huntington Avenue Theatre, 264 Huntington Avenue

The Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony Award-nominated Best Play by Lynn Nottage (Ruined) comes alive in a moving and urgently relevant new production directed by Kimberly Senior (The Niceties). Based on interviews with the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of close friends struggle to stay connected when their factory is at risk of collapse. In a neighborhood bar, each of them reaches for their piece of the American dream. Can their friendships survive this test? Nottage weaves a tale of trust and doubt, longtime bonds and short-term possibilities. The New York Times raves, “Superb… Nottage is writing at the peak of her powers.”

Please note: Sweat plays in approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes, with one ten-minute intermission. This production includes the smoking of cocoa shell cigarettes (100% nicotine free). Learn more about content advisories for this production.
