Sweat

SWEAT by Lynn Nottage

Directed by Michael Stevenson

October 17 – November 18, 2018
Sacramento Premiere | 2017 Pulitzer Prize Winner

Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Sweat tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.

 

 

“Pulitzer-winning ‘Sweat’ premieres at Capital Stage” The Sacramento Bee

“It’s a TOUR-DE-FORCE for Capital Stage; a timely, thought provoking and unsettling peek into lives and communities that seem forever floundering for a future.” SN&R

“…A timely, RIVETING drama… It is one of those ‘NOT-TO-BE-MISSED’ productions for which Capital Stage is often known…” The Davis Enterprise

“Keenly observed and often surprisingly funny—but ultimately heartbreaking—the work traces the roots of a tragedy with both forensic psychological detail and embracing compassion. Ms. Nottage…is writing at the peak of her powers…”
