Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Lynn Nottage, has written one of her most exquisitely devastating tragedies to date.  Co-commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival as part of its American Revolutions: the U. S. History Cycle, and the Arena Stage, SWEAT received its world premiere at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival during the 2015 season. By winning the Pulitzer Prize for SWEAT, Ms. Nottage became the first woman playwright to be honored twice (her earlier Pulitzer was for RUINED).

In one of the poorest cities in America, Reading, Pennsylvania, a group of down-and-out factory workers struggles to keep their present lives in balance, ignorant of the financial devastation looming in their near futures.  
Paper Ed.  115 pages.
