Loaded with warm humor and a whole lot of heart, Sweat brings the tale of working-class Americans struggling to stay afloat in a tight economy to the Broadway stage. Lynn Nottage and Kate Whoriskey, the creative team behind the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Ruined,” showcase this personal and political drama in a tremendous way. With the backdrop set against a small Pennsylvania town at the turn of the millennium, Sweat follows a group of close-knit friends – so close they’ve spent their lives sharing secrets, drinks and countless laughs – as they work together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, this group of friends, who were once inseparable, find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to survive.
