Here’s What’s Happening (03-15-19)

“THE FIRST THEATRICAL LANDMARK OF THE TRUMP ERA: Lynn Nottage’s play is a tough yet empathetic portrait of the America that came undone.”

— Michael Schulman, The New Yorker

Who:                The Humanity Theatre Project

What:               Sweat by Lynn Nottage*

When:              Friday, March 15 – Saturday, March 16 at 7:00 p.m.

Where:             Darkhorse Theater (4610 Charlotte Avenue)

Tickets:            www.humanitytheatreproject.com

*A discussion featuring panelists from the community will follow each performance.

In her Pulitzer Prize-winning play Sweat, Lynn Nottage gives a voice to those who often feel they have none, such as best friends Tracey (Ang) and Cynthia (Chandra), saloon-loving adults who work together on a steel manufacturing line. In a tight-knit community like this one, however, it takes but one fracture in its core for the breaking point of friendship to be seismically tested. Inspired by field research and first-person testimonials collected in Reading, PA, Lynn Nottage’s unflinching slice-of-life drama captures the pressure cooker of trying times—where a lethal combination of layoffs, lockout, and picket lines sends the Rust Belt way of life into crisis.  Sweat is a tough, yet empathetic, portrait of the America that came undone.”
