What’s On (Edmonton): Sweat starts Saturday in the Shoctor Theatre!

Don’t miss the show that’s been selling out across North America!

 
The General Motors plants in Oshawa. The raging resource labour debates in Alberta. The story of the modern working class – forged on factory floors and picket lines – is the explosive subject of Lynn Nottage’s Sweat, starting on the Shoctor Theatre stage January 12.
 
When the ability to provide for your family is at risk, something will have to give. No matter what they choose, one thing is certain: their lives will never be the same.
 
  “… a moral, passionate and richly articulated cri de coeur from one of America’s leading African-American playwrights …” –Chicago Tribune
 
Sweat earned playwright Lynn Nottage her second Pulitzer Prize for Drama – making her the first woman ever to win the prestigious honour twice. Her keen eye on the anxieties around modern labour makes this an unmissable piece of drama that has never been more relevant in Western Canada.
