Sweat

May 3-11, 2024

In the Studio

5 PERFORMANCES:
May 3, 4, 10 & 11 at 7:00 pm 
May 5 at 3:00 pm

Sweat takes place in the nearby factory town of Reading, PA where we witness a group of friends sharing drinks, spilling secrets, and finding humor in their collective struggles.  As layoffs manifest picket lines, friendships fracture as these co-workers fight for relevance, equity, and equality in this new age automation. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for 3 Tony Awards including Best Play.
