Anne R. Belk Theater

The Department of Theater presents Lynn Nottage's Sweat. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play portrays a meeting between a parole officer and two ex-convicts, and three women who were childhood friends and had worked in the same factory. It also examines the disintegration of a friendship, after two of the women – one white, one black – apply for the same management job.

Ben Brantley of The New York Times called Sweat a "bracingly topical portrait of American dreams deferred in working-class Pennsylvania," written by "a justly acclaimed dramatist of ambitious scope and fierce focus."

Directed by Ron McClelland.
