Sweat transfers For 50 Performance Only

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play SWEAT by Lynn Nottage is transferring to the West End’s Gielgud Theatre from 7 June to 20 July, following a sold-out run at The Donmar Warehouse.

Based on interviews with residents of the rustbelt town of Reading, Pennsylvania, Nottage’s play examines the lives of factory workers facing de-industrialisation. As friendships strain under fear, anger and racial tensions, a devastating outcome awaits the divided community.

Directed by Bush Theatre Artistic Director and former Donmar Resident Assistant Director Lynette Linton, the production will once again be led by Martha Plimpton.
