From the Director’s Note:
"The American play that Sweat reminds me of is Death of a Salesman. When Arthur Miller wrote Death of a Salesman in 1949 and called it a modern tragedy, he tapped into the American psyche and displayed the American Dream as something ultimately unobtainable and destructive. Willy’s fate is in part due to economic conditions and in part to his own character. The same is true of the characters in Sweat.“Ultimately, Nottage has crafted a play that humanizes the most pertinent issues of today-the loss of manufacturing jobs, the erosion of the middle class, race, and the opioid crisis in a way that is immediate and deeply relatable to the audience.
“I am proud to be leading an extraordinary cast comprised of top local actors in this heart-wrenching story of grit, friendship, and survival.” George Popovich
