Santa Fe Playhouse Presents: Sweat

Written by Lynn Nottage. Directed by Robyn Rikoon.

Shifting between 2000 and 2008, workers at Olstead form long-lasting bonds over drinks, secrets, and laughs after grueling workdays on the factory floor. Until relationships are put to the test when the Rust Belt factory leaves the union and inevitable layoffs and promotions take place. Using wit and grit as only Nottage can, SWEAT was written after conducting two years of interviews with residents of Reading, Pennsylvania.
