TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: A.C.T. to Present Pulitzer Prize-Winning Drama “Sweat”

Sep 14, 2018
American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) will present Lynn Nottage’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize–winning drama, “Sweat” at A.C.T.’s Geary Theater (415 Geary St.) in San Francisco, September 26 through October 21, 2018. In Reading, Pennsylvania — the blue-collar heart of America’s steel industry — a tight-knit group of factory workers has gathered in the local bar for generations to share laughs, hopes, and cold beers. But as the country heads into a new millennium, recession looms, and a union lock-out turns assembly line into picket line, one event will send shockwaves through these lifelong friends, pitting them against each other in the struggle to survive. Inspired by the stories of Rust Belt workers, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage unites heart and humor and goes where few playwrights have dared to go to forge a searing drama of the grit, drive, and resilience of our conflicted American dreams.

Under the direction of Loretta Greco (artistic director at San Francisco’s Magic Theatre), “Sweat” features a talented cast, including (in alphabetical order): Lise Bruneau as Tracey, David Darrow as Jason, Rod Gnapp as Stan, Kadeem Ali Harris as Chris, Sarah Nina Hayon as Jessie, Chike Johnson as Brucie, Jed Parsario as Oscar, Tonye Patano as Cynthia, and Adrian Roberts as Evan.

The creative team for “Sweat” includes Andrew Boyce (Scenic Designer), Ulises Alcala (Costume Designer), Allen Lee Hughes (Lighting Designer), Jake Rodriguez (Sound Designer), and Hana Kim (Video Designer).

For tickets or more information please phone (415) 749-2228 or visit act-sf.org.
