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.

Evening Standard★★★★★ – "By turns profound, terrifying, earthy and witty, Lynette Linton's superbly calibrated production excels fromstart to finish" The Guardian★★★★★ – "A breathtaking new play" Daily Telegraph★★★★★ – "A knock-out blow of theatrical force" Financial Times★★★★★ – "A humane, heartbreaking and magnificent play"
