"Sweat" is best at its muddiest, when love and hate, and the urges to strike out and to comfort, teeter in precipitous balance. That's when Ms. Nottage's characters, and the cast members who embody them, emerge in their full tragic humanity.

Plays

Lynn Nottage's 2017 Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama

Centre Theatre Group's groundbreaking 2018/19 season continues with the poignant Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Sweat, an unflinching portrayal of the very human lives behind the statistics of America's economic decline. Tough, yet empathetic, playwright Lynn Nottage weaves together her extensive research from interviews with the community of Reading, Pennsylvania and gut-punching emotional honesty, humour and stark tragedy for a thought provoking production that brings audiences face to face with their own sense humanity.

An industrial town reliant on their steel industry, Reading is headed rapidly towards the first wave of the recession. When their shared, blue-collar American Dream succumbs to the failings of Wall Street, friends, family and co-workers find themselves on opposite sides of the picket lines as they fight for survival. Their small-town becomes a reflective microcosm of the Trump era world as despair is met with an inspiring resilience and sense of hope.
