The Brooklyn College Department of Theater Presents

Lynn Nottage's "Sweat"

November 15-23

Lynn Nottage's "Sweat"

Examining the collapse of the American factory system, Sweat follows steelworkers in a small Pennsylvania town as they come to terms with the destruction of the American Dream in their professional and personal lives.

Based in part on interviews done by the playwright in Reading, Pennsylvania – called the poorest city in America in 2012 – the play asks us to retrace the economic collapse of many American towns and the ensuing racial, political, and violent ideology that emerged as a result.

Lynn Nottage is a professor at Columbia University and two time winner of thePulitzer Prize for Drama -- once for Ruined in 2009 and again for Sweat in 2017.

A MainStage Production directed byTara Elliott.
