Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Sweat focuses on factory workers in Reading, Pa. who are facing the decline of manufacturing jobs in America.  

The New York Times noted that: “From first moments to last, this compassionate but clear-eyed play throbs with heartfelt life, with characters as complicated as any you’ll encounter at the theater today, and with a nifty ticking time bomb of a plot.  That the people onstage are middle-class or lower-middle-class folks — too rarely given ample time on American stages — makes the play all the more vital a contribution to contemporary drama.”

Recommended for mature high school students and adults

General admission, $12; Faculty/staff and senior citizens (with ID), $10; Students (with ID), $7.
