Ursinus Theater Presents “Sweat” by Lynn Nottage

Sweat, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Lynn Nottage that explores the far-reaching impacts of economic disparity and issues of race, class, and gender, is coming to the Ursinus College stage this month. Performances are March 24, 25, and 26 at 7:30 p.m. and March 27 at 2 p.m. in the Lenfest Theater in the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center on the Ursinus College campus.

Directed by Professor of Theater Domenick Scudera, Sweat tells the story of steel plant workers in Reading, Pa., who must contend with fallout from a changing economy and trade agreements.

Set mostly in a bar where a group of work friends gather, the play exposes how the workers’ relationships evolve and dissolve as they are pitted against each other in labor disputes.
