The Department of Theater presents Lynn Nottage's Sweat. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play portrays the changing dynamics in a dying blue-collar town - Reading, Pennsylvania - at the dawn of the 21st century. Issues of economics, race relations, immigration, and political power are manifested through the interactions and disintegrating relationships of the key characters, whose factory jobs no longer offer the job security they had expected.
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. See the full cast and crew here.
