(SCC) City Theatre's "Mother Goose: The British Panto"

Filled with humor and immense heart, Sweat tells the journey of a group of friends who share drinks, laughs, and secrets at their favorite local bar after work on the factory floor. The close-knit group’s trust is tested during impending layoffs and strikes as they fight to stay afloat and reach for the American dream. This powerful and poignant story provides an emphatic look at working-class Americans and the intricacy of identity, race, and humanity. Produced on Broadway, Lynn Nottage’s contemporary play Sweat won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2017.
