SWEAT

Following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat is transferring to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre for 50 performances only from 7 June 2019. Click here for more information.

 

In 2011, Lynn Nottage began spending time with the people of Reading, Pennsylvania: officially one of the poorest cities in the USA.

During the following two years, she dug deep into the forgotten heart of middle America, finding a city divided by racial tension and the collapse of industry.

Sweat is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that Lynn Nottage wrote following her experience.  

Her tale of friends pitted against each other by big business, and the decline of the American Dream received its UK premiere at the Donmar, directed by former Donmar Resident Assistant Director and Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre Lynette Linton.
