Synopsis


It is the year 2000 in the Rust Belt town of Reading, Pennsylvania.


With pressure mounting on the local steel industry, a diverse group of fellow workers finds close friendships and family ties torn apart as lay-offs threaten and picket lines form.


Described by The Observer as "the year's most powerful play", Sweat earned a second Pulitzer Prize for its African-American author, Lynn Nottage, in 2017.


It will have a special resonance in the year that Donald Trump seeks re-election, and there are strong echoes of the aftermath of de-industrialisation in the UK.
