About Sweat

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play SWEAT by Lynn Nottage is transferring to the West End's Gielgud Theatre for 50 performances only following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse.

Based on interviews with residents of the rustbelt town of Reading, Pennsylvania, this 'breathtaking new play' (The Guardian) delivers 'a knock-out blow of theatrical force' (Daily Telegraph) as it examines the lives of factory workers facing de-industrialisation. As friendships strain under fear, anger and racial tensions, a devastating outcome awaits the divided community.
