From assembly line to picket line, it’s more than just a job.
Amarillo Little Theatre is very proud to present the highly acclaimed new play, Sweat, as the second Adventure Space production of the season!
It’s the year 2000 in the steel town of Reading, Pennsylvania, and all best friends Tracey and Cynthia need are their steady factory jobs, their favorite bar, and each other. But as years pass and a recession hits, hard times at the factory threaten their livelihoods and test the limits of their friendship. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, and nominated for the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play, Sweat takes an unflinching look at life in the industrial working class that has been hailed as “the first theatrical landmark of the Trump era.”
ALT has cast a brilliant ensemble for this production. It includes ALT veteran actors Melanie Sanders and Patrick Burns as well as some very talented newcomers. This includes Kissey Cummings, Kyle Gipson, Brandon Graves, Brandon Dawson, Susie O’Dierno, Derek McDaniel and Dom Hernandez. Allen Shankles is Artistic Director with Kim Shreffler serving as Assistant to the Director.
This is a brilliant new play! Make your reservations today!
