It is the year 2000 in the Rust Belt town of Reading, Pennsylvania. With pressure mounting on the local steel industry, a diverse group of fellow workers finds close friendships and family ties torn apart as lay-offs threaten and picket lines form.

Winner of the Evening Standard award for “Play of the Year” in 2019, Sweat also earned a second Pulitzer Prize for its African-American author, Lynn Nottage, in 2017. It will have a special resonance in the year that Donald Trump seeks re-election, and there are strong echoes of the aftermath of de-industrialisation in the UK.

This production features strong language and occasional use of racial epithets which some viewers may find offensive. Suitable for an age 12+ audience.
