SweatOregon Shakespeare Festival’s World Premiere


By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Kate Whoriskey

A group of close friends shares everything: drinks, secrets, and laughs. But when rumors of layoffs shake up the local steel mill, the fragile bonds of their community begin to fray and a horrific crime sends shock waves across two generations.

This gripping world premiere by acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) explores America’s industrial decline at the turn of the millennium by examining the inhabitants of one Pennsylvania town who still struggle to reclaim what’s lost, find redemption, and redefine themselves in a new century.
