About this show

The American dream has its back up against the wall in this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Lynn Nottage. In Reading, Pennsylvania, there's talk of union lockouts, massive layoffs, and jobs going overseas. As rumors quickly become reality, a group of lifelong friends gather at their local bar to joke and blow off steam while struggling to stand together as everything else falls apart. Inspired by true stories, Sweat, directed by Laura Kepley, is a compelling portrait of pride and survival in the rust belt.
