After a sell-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat is transferring to the Gielgud Theatre. Lynn was inspired to write the play following her time spent with the people of Reading, Pennsylvania, one of the poorest cities in the US and a place scarred by racial tension and the collapse of the steel industry, so the drama examines what happens when the American Dream doesn’t quite come true.
