    Lynn Nottage’s masterpiece of blue collar America looks at the tensions of factory workers as they struggle with labor strife, racial tension, getting another gimlet and the boiling frustrations of trying to make a dollar out of fifty cents. Created by Nottage after more than two years spent in Reading, PA interviewing residents of the then poorest city in America, Sweat won the Pulitzer prize for the passion and humor of its vivid characters as they fight for their lives in a world that is changing around them faster than anyone can keep up.
