About Sweat

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.”
