SWEAT by Lynn Nottage

DISCOUNT: Pay What You Can Night will be on Wednesday, March 13!

The Humanity Theatre Project presents the regional premiere of Lynn Nottage’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winner SWEAT.

In her Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat, Lynn Nottage gives a voice to those who often feel they have none such as best friends Tracey and Cynthia, saloon-loving adults who work together on a steel manufacturing line. In a tight-knit community like this one, however, it takes but one fracture in its core for the breaking point of friendship to be seismically tested. Inspired by field research and first-person testimonials collected in Reading, PA, Lynn Nottage’s unflinching slice-of-life drama captures the pressure cooker of trying times—where a lethal combination of layoffs, lockout, and picket lines sends the Rust Belt way of life into crisis. Called the “first theatrical landmark of the Trump era,” Sweat is a tough, yet empathetic, portrait of the America that came undone.

Founding Artistic Director Daniel DeVault says, “Quite simply, Sweat offers everything that the Humanity Theatre Project wants to explore. Lynn Nottage has crafted a vital contribution to contemporary drama that, at its heart, reminds us what it is to be human. I am excited to be the first to share this story with the Nashville community and am hopeful that our presentation will incite meaningful discussions after each performance.”
