Run Time: Approximately 2 hours with a 15 minute intermission

Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heartwrenching fight to stay afloat. A nuanced yet powerful drama that reminds audiences of the stacked deck still facing workers searching for the American dream.

“A couple minutes, and your whole life changes, that’s it. It’s gone. Every day I think about what if I hadn’t . . . you know . . . I run it and run it, a tape over and over again. What if. What if. What if.”


Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize

“Keenly observed and often surprisingly funny—but ultimately heartbreaking—the work traces the roots of a tragedy with both forensic psychological detail and embracing compassion.”
          —NY Times

“…passionate and necessary…a masterful depiction of the forces that divide and conquer us… Along with the rage, despair and violence, there’s humor and abundant humanity…a cautionary tale of what happens when you don’t know how to resist.”
          —Time Out NY

“Sharp and threatening as a box cutter blade…ferociously engrossing…SWEAT never feels less than authentic—and crucial.”
