"Sweat" - Livestream - Contemporary Voices: A Virtual Theater Festival - Part 1 Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Sweat" expertly weaves a tale that endures with themes of economic disadvantage, despair and reconciliation. Set in the Rust Belt town of Reading, Pennsylvania, in 2000 and 2008, "Sweat" follows a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other, and racial tensions are heightened in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat. "Keenly observed and often surprisingly funny - but ultimately heartbreaking - the work traces the roots of a tragedy with both forensic psychological detail and embracing compassion," said The New York Times. Known for writing about the lives of marginalized people, Nottage is a professor of playwriting at Columbia University. She is the only woman to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice. Quin Gordon, director of recruitment for the School of Drama, directed actors from Studios III and IV in the production filmed live in Hanesbrands Theatre during the fall semester. click here

It follows a pre-adolescent Edgar Allan Poe in his first year at English Boarding School, as he seeks to gain academic ascendancy over the student body.
