Back Sweat

From 7 June – 20 July 2019

Gielgud Theatre

The Donmar Warehouse’s sold-out production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sweat by Lynn Nottage will transfer to London’s Gielgud Theatre for a limited 6 week run from Friday 7 June 2019.

Martha Plimpton will reprise her role as Tracey in Lynette Linton’s acclaimed production, with further casting to be announced.

Sweat is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that Lynn Nottage wrote following her experience.

Centered around the friendships of factory workers and set in an all-American bar, the play explores the relationships, resentments and fears of a community left divided by de-industrialisation.  Simmering racial tensions and mounting anger lead to a devastating outcome for the residents of Reading, Pennsylvania.
