SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on a factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in the hard fight to stay afloat. Recommended for ages 16+.

About the Public Theater Mobile Unit
The Public Theater’s Mobile Unit breaks down economic and geographic barriers to the arts by meeting our communities where they are, staging free professional theater productions in local neighborhood venues such as libraries, homeless shelters, and community centers across all five New York City boroughs. This reimagining of The Public Theater’s original Mobile Theater is inspired by Ten Thousand Things Theater in Minneapolis, MN.

The Mobile Unit National initiative represents our first expansion of this program beyond New York. Mobile Unit National will produce an 18-stop tour of Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play SWEAT in Fall 2018, traveling through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Each tour stop will be supported by tailored artistic engagement activities designed to amplify the voices of local communities in the Rust Belt and Midwest, and to powerfully connect their stories to a larger national narrative.
