SWEAT by Lynn Nottage
STREAMING UNTIL SEP 27, 2020
Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, SWEAT tells the story of 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 in a heart-wrenching fight to stay true to themselves and each other.

Plays for this moment and the next.
Silence is a form of acceptance. We will not be silent in the face of de-humanization of others. Nor will we sit by and allow anyone to be silenced for speaking their truth. Our 2020/21 season is all about elevating the silenced: Women. Queer. Black. Indigenous. Disadvantaged. Differently-Abled.
We are proud to present, for the first time in our history, a full season of Sonoma County premieres by contemporary Women Playwrights. Both established and emerging, these women will help us identify broken systems and imagine new ways of being together.
It has become obvious that old systems no longer work and have created disconnection and separation instead of depth and unity. Experiencing this reality can be frustrating and heartbreaking (SWEAT) and at times hysterical and laugh out loud funny (THANKSGIVING PLAY). Reflecting on our past experiences can provide us fresh perspectives (HINDSIGHT 2021 NEW PLAY FESTIVAL). There always exists an option to break from harmful patterns of behavior (THE MYSTERY OF LOVE AND SEX), to explore unconventional options (HOW TO TRANSCEND A HAPPY MARRIAGE) and to—perhaps—arrive at something truly original (DANCE NATION).
