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. 

This ‘profound, terrifying, earthy and witty’ production ‘excels from start to finish’ (Evening Standard) and is ‘the year’s most powerful play’ (The Observer).

    A powerful play about the consequences of life changing events to people in a close knit community. A strong performance from all the cast. Excellent use of images throughout, giving a feel for the era.

    The opening scene takes a while to launch but then as main characters appear in the central bar,it grabs you completely. Despair, jealousy and destruction are wrought onstage in a play as relevant today as when it was written.
