|Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama!
Sweat is the critically acclaimed new play from Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. It arrives on Broadway following its sold-out run at The Public Theater.
The New York Times calls Sweat a “scorching, superb and vital contribution to contemporary drama.” Kate Whoriskey’s “assured and emotionally vibrant staging” (Time Out New York) illuminates this “perfectly written” (The New Yorker) play about the collision of race, class and friendship in a Rust Belt town at a pivotal moment in America.
Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, laughs and secrets while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, they find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.
Don’t miss this groundbreaking new drama from Lynn Nottage (“as fine a playwright as America has” - The Wall Street Journal) that “goes where few playwrights have dared to go” (Variety).
