Sweat, The 2017 Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama by Lynn Nottage presented at the Pearl McManus Theater in Palm Springs
2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Lynn Nottage
February 28, 2020 – March 8, 2020
It’s the year 2000 in Reading, Pennsylvania and a group of friends go to work at the steel mill and then decompress at the bar like they’ve been doing for over 20 years. But, unbeknownst to them, their lives are about to be uprooted. Their steel mill is making some changes and the blood, sweat and tears of generations of loyal workers don’t seem to amount to much. SWEAT dissects the insidiousness of privilege and entitlement, reminding you that there’s always someone on a lower plane to blame for your troubles, and there will always be someone who stands to profit from your loss.
Directed by Michael Shaw
“Sharp and threatening as a box cutter blade…ferociously engrossing…SWEAT never feels less than authentic – and crucial.”
