It’s been announced that the Donmar Warehouse production of Lynn Nottage’s SWEAT will extend for one week.
The show opened in December to critical acclaim and the run has been sold out for some time. The extension takes SWEAT to 2nd February with tickets going on sale at 10am on 14th January.
Directed by Lynette Linton (who recently took position as the new AD of the Bush), SWEAT is a tale of friends pitted against each other by big business and the decline of the American Dream. Set in Reading, Pennsylvania, and based on real conversations between the townsfolk and Lynn Nottage, SWEAT explores one of the poorest cities in the US, and the people who live and work here. Nottage’s play was the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama after enjoying an acclaimed run on Broadway that year.
Casting for the production includes: Leanne Best, Patrick Gibson, Osy Ikhile, Wil Johnson, Stuart McQuarrie, Clare Perkins, Martha Plimpton, Sule Rimi and Sebastian Viveros.
SWEAT features direction by Lynette Linton, design by Frankie Bradshaw, lighting by Oliver Fenwick, music and sound by George Dennis, movement by Polly Bennett, video by Gino Ricardo Green and fight direction by Kate Waters.
SWEAT will now run at London’s Donmar Warehouse to 2nd February. Tickets for the extension go on sale on the 14th January.
