Sweat Theatre Tickets and Hotel Packages

Reading Pennsylvania was a town where people worked hard all day and drank hard all night. They went straight from high school to a job in the mill or the plant and worked there for the rest of their lives.

Sweat tells the story of a community devastated by automation and the collapse of industry. We see three friends over drinks at their local bar and watch the dynamics of the town, and their relationships change through promotions and pay cuts, strikes and scabs.

The lines between friendship and violence, love and hate, racism and prejudice shift and blur in this compelling tale of the American dream turned nightmare. The tale shifts between 2000 and 2008, in a small East coast city, but in these times of Trump and Brexit the story hits shockingly close to home.
