A bracingly topical portrait of American dreams deferred.

Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Sweat is the scorching new play from Lynn Nottage (Ruined) that The New York Times hailed as keenly observed and surprisingly funny…throbs with heartfelt life.

In the industrial town of Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of friends spend their days on the factory floor and their nights sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to erode their trust, they find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat. Based on Nottage's extensive research and interviews with residents of Reading and arriving at the Taper after a heralded Broadway run, Sweat is a searing reflection of America's economic decline.

Ferociously engrossing.
