Director: Lynette Linton; Written by: Lynne Nottage
Following its sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, the Olivier Award-nominated play Sweat will be coming to Gielgud Theatre for a limited run of just 50 shows.
The story explores the relationships and friendships of local factory workers in an American bar, and the fear caused by the de-industrialisation of their community. Racial tensions simmer underneath and soon the mounting anger leads to a devastating outcome for Reading's residents.
