Photo Flash: First Look at SWEAT In Rehearsal at Donmar Warehouse

The Donmar Warehouse releases first look rehearsal images of Sweat, written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Lynette Linton, which opens on Wednesday 19 December (with previews from Friday 7 December).

In 2011, Lynn Nottage began spending time with the people of Reading, Pennsylvania: officially one of the poorest cities in the USA.

During the following two years, she dug deep into the forgotten heart of middle America, finding a city divided by racial tension and the collapse of industry.

Sweat is the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that Lynn Nottage wrote following her experience. Casting includes Leanne Best, Patrick Gibson, Osy Ikhile, Wil Johnson, Stuart McQuarrie, Clare Perkins, Martha Plimpton, Sule Rimi and Sebastian Viveros.

Martha Plimpton is appearing with the permission of UK Equity, incorporating the Variety Artistes' Federation, pursuant to an exchange programme between the American Equity and UK Equity.


Her tale of friends pitted against each other by big business and the decline of the American Dream receives its UK premiere at the Donmar, directed by former Donmar Resident Assistant Director Lynette Linton.
