SWEAT AT THE GIELGUD THEATRE

 

Following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, and Olivier Award-nominated, play Sweat transferred to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre for 50 performances.

 

This ‘breathtaking new play’ (★★★★★ 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’ (★★★★★ 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 from start to finish’ (★★★★★ Evening Standard) and features ‘a superlative cast’ (★★★★★ Sunday Times). In an era defined by division and mistrust this is a ‘humane, heartbreaking’ and ‘magnificent’ play (★★★★★ Financial Times).
