For twenty years, a group of friends working at a steel mill decompress at the local bar. When rumors surface that the company is considering layoffs and flyers are hung to recruit non-union workers for less money, the war between community and capitalism begins and tensions start destroying not only jobs, but also relationships. Filled with heart and humour, Sweat
is a searing examination of industrial decline, race, politics and friendship by one of the U.S.’s most decorated playwrights.
“A must-see! Scorching. Superb. Vital.”
