It’s the year 2000 in Reading, Pennsylvania and a group of friends who work at the steel mill meet to decompress at the same run-down bar they’ve been coming to for over 20 years. But the steel mill is making changes, setting off a war between community and capitalism which destroys not only jobs but the relationships they thought would last a lifetime. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Sweat examines the very personal meaning of America’s key conflicts: the economy, race-relations, and politics.
