Sweat

by Lynn Nottage
Directed by Loretta Greco
 

September 26–October 21, 2018
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
415 Geary Street, San Francisco


Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including one intermission


A.C.T. kicks off the 2018–19 season with the Pulitzer Prize–winning drama that had Broadway critics and audiences on their feet.

In Reading, Pennsylvania—the blue-collar heart of America’s steel industry—a tight-knit group of factory workers has gathered in the local bar for generations to share laughs, hopes, and cold beers. But as the country heads into a new millennium, recession looms, and a lock-out turns assembly line into picket line, one event will send shockwaves through these lifelong friends, pitting them against each other in the struggle to survive.

Inspired by the stories of Rust Belt workers, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) unites heart and humor and “goes where few playwrights have dared to go” (Variety) to forge a searing drama of the grit, drive, and resilience of our conflicted American dreams.

 

Please note: This production includes strong language, smoking, racial slurs, and racial violence.
