SWEAT Play London

Following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning play SWEAT transfers to Gielgud Theatre for 50 performances only. This 'breathtaking new play' (The Guardian) delivers 'a knock-out blow of theatrical force' (Daily Telegraph) as it delves deep into the forgotten heart of middle America in 'the year's most powerful play' (The Observer). Centred around the friendships of factory workers and set in an all-American bar, the play explores the relationships, resentments and fears of a community left divided by de-industrialisation. Simmering racial tensions and mounting anger lead to a devastating outcome for the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania. 'By turns profound, terrifying, earthy and witty, Lynette Linton's superbly calibrated production excels fromstart to finish' (Evening Standard) and features 'a superlative cast' (The Sunday Times). In an era defined by division and mistrust this is a 'humane, heartbreaking' and 'magnificent' play (Financial Times).
