Sweat is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! This critically acclaimed new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage comes to Broadway following its sold-out run at The Public Theater.

Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.

The New York Times hails it as “an extraordinarily moving drama throbbing with heartfelt life.” Kate Whoriskey’s “assured and emotionally vibrant staging” (Time Out New York) illuminates this “perfectly written” (The New Yorker) play that takes place at a pivotal moment in America.

Don't miss this groundbreaking drama from Lynn Nottage (“as fine a playwright as America has” - The Wall Street Journal) that “goes where few playwrights have dared to go” (Variety).
