Sweat Reviews

THE BEST ENSEMBLE CAST OF THE YEAR!
Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
The arrival of the scorching new play Sweat could hardly be more timely. Keenly observed and often surprisingly funny — but ultimately heartbreaking — the work traces the roots of a tragedy with both forensic psychological detail and embracing compassion.
Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
Under Kate Whoriskey’s assured and emotionally vibrant staging, Sweat is gripping and timely.
David Cote, Time Out

Summary

SWEAT is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This critically acclaimed new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage comes to Broadway following its sold-out run at The Public Theater. The New York Times hails it as “an extraordinarily moving drama throbbing with heartfelt life.” Kate Whoriskey’s “assured and emotionally vibrant staging” (Time Out New York) illuminates this “perfectly written” (The New Yorker) play that takes place 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, 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.

Don't miss this groundbreaking 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).
