Sweat is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! This critically acclaimed new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage comes to Broadway following its sold-out run at The Public Theater.

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 heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.

The New York Times hails it as “an extraordinarily moving drama throbbing with heartfelt life.” Kate Whoriskey’s “assured and emotionally vibrant staging” (Time Out New York) illuminates this “perfectly written” (The New Yorker) play that takes place at a pivotal moment in America.

Don't miss this groundbreaking drama from Lynn Nottage (“as fine a playwright as America has” - The Wall Street Journal) that “goes where few playwrights have dared to go” (Variety).

I enjoyed Sweat and appreciated how poignant the production was, especially given the times we are in politically. Good, diverse play in all aspects - race, age, ethnicity.

I was very moved by the show's powerful subtlety. I loved the relevance it had to today's political climate, and was very moved emotionally. I think it is something that everyone that enjoys non-musical theatre should see.

I enjoyed the show very much! I thought the acting was superb and had a big impact. The story line is very relevant.
