Sweat

Broadway
Play
Original
Following a sold out and critically acclaimed engagement Off-Broadway at the Public Theater, Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage's Sweat transfers to Broadway in a production directed by Kate Whoriskey. This stunning new play is about the collision of race, class, family, and friendship, and the tragic, unintended costs of community without opportunity. Sweat was co-commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and D.C.'s Arena Stage, where it played world premiere engagements.

SYNOPSIS:

A group of friends have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the line of a factory floor, but when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, they themselves pitted against each other in the hard fight to stay afloat.
