Directed by Justin Emeka

The folks at Olstead’s Steel Tubing in Reading, Pennsylvania work, drink, and dream together, until layoffs and lockouts at the factory begin to drive them apart. By following the lives of nine friends between 2000 and 2008, this combustible drama unearths the brutal consequences of a battered economy and dares to ask how we begin to heal. Critically acclaimed on Broadway, Sweat was awarded the 2017 Pulitzer Prize.

Featuring: Lynn Nottage, Justin Emeka
