A one-night-only staged reading of Lynn Nottage's "Sweat," an unforgettable play for unprecedented times. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, "Sweat" is a chilling and timely play that tells the story of a group of colleagues in Pennsylvania whose fortunes rapidly decline between 2000 and the 2008 financial crisis. It's a devastating account of American industrial collapse and the racial and class tensions that shatter the surface when people become desperate and feel their backs against the wall.
