Omaha, NE–Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize, Sweat will open Friday, August 16 at the Omaha Community Playhouse. The show will run in the Howard Drew Theatre from Aug 16 to Sept 15. Performances will be held Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm.
Sweat is a head-first dive into working class America. A three time Tony Award nominee, Sweat follows a group of steelworkers whose steady march toward the American Dream is uprooted by economic change. As their sense of security slowly unravels, jobs and relationships are left in the wake. Punctuated with lively humor, Sweat goes to the heart of what it means to be human–both good and bad–when fear and uncertainty take hold.
Tickets are on sale now starting at $36 with ticket prices varying by performance. Tickets may be purchased at the OCP Box Office located at 6915 Cass Street by phone at 402-553-0800 or online at www.omahaplayhouse.com
