Sweat

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).
