Villagers Main Stage Presents: Sweat
Performances are Friday + Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sunday at 2:00 pm
Sweat examines the changing lives of factory workers in Reading, Pennsylvania, between the years of 2000 and 2008. The play is also set at a pivotal transitional time in American industry, when many longstanding factory jobs were outsourced to other countries. The play examines the intersecting stories of workers on strike, three female friends who work together in a plant, and the generational differences between these workers and their sons. Most of the play’s action takes place in a local bar run by Stan—a former factory worker.
