Running since March 2017
A stunning new play about the collision of race, class, family and friendship, and the tragic, unintended costs of community without opportunity.

From the producers: Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, "Sweat" tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.

Playwright Lynn Nottage is an associate professor of theater at Columbia University and a lecturer in playwriting at Yale University. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2009 for her play "Ruined." "Sweat" debuted at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2015 followed by its East Coast premiere at Washington D.C.'s Arena Stage earlier this year. The play premiered Off Broadway at the Public Theater October 2016, garnering rave reviews and three extensions.



The cast of "Sweat" includes Carlo Albán, James Colby, Khris Davis, Johanna Day, John Earl Jelks, Will Pullen, Alison Wright, Lance Coadie Williams, and Michelle Wilson.
