Sweat Tickets

Gielgud Theatre, London, W1V 8AR
  • The transfer of the sold-out Donmar Warehouse production of Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat is now in its final 10 days at the Gielgud Theatre.

    'The year’s most powerful play' (Observer) delivers 'a knock-out blow of theatrical force' (Daily Telegraph) as it explores the forgotten heart of middle America in Reading, Pennsylvania, a once-proud manufacturing hub of the American Dream. 

    Set in an all-American downtown bar, this 'breathtaking new play' (The Guardian) 'effortlessly flits between humour, heartbreak and trauma' (Broadway World) as it follows the lives and relationships of factory floor workers. As the threat of de-industrialisation looms, simmering racial tensions and mounting anger lead to a devastating outcome for the divided community.

    'By turns profound, terrifying, earthy and witty, Lynette Linton’s superbly calibrated production excels from start to finish' (Evening Standard) and 'gives a fascinating insight into Trump’s America' (The Times). This 'humane, heartbreaking' and 'magnificent' play (Financial Times) is an 'an absorbing and moving cry from the heart' (What’s On Stage), 'a masterpiece' (Time Out).
