American Made Drama of Grit and Heart: SWEAT

Ticket Prices:
$15.00-$110.00

Running Time:
TBA

A.C.T. kicks off the 2018–19 season with the Pulitzer Prize–winning drama that had Broadway critics and audiences on their feet.

In Reading, Pennsylvania—the blue-collar heart of America’s steel industry—a tight-knit group of factory workers has gathered in the local bar for generations to share laughs, hopes, and cold beers. But as the country heads into a new millennium, recession looms, and a union lock-out turns assembly line into picket line, one event will send shockwaves through these lifelong friends, pitting them against each other in the struggle to survive.

Inspired by the stories of Rust Belt workers, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) unites heart and humor and “goes where few playwrights have dared to go” (Variety) to forge a searing drama of the grit, drive, and resilience of our conflicted American dreams.
